Default IDCS and Info palette

Is there some secret about getting the Info palette to display information?

When I was writing my Epson 4000 review for PC Graphics Report, I actually wrote the text in WordPerfect and then copy/pasted it into ID and I couldn't get the Info palette to display anything--I wanted the word count. I finally ended up copy/pasting my edited text from ID to PageMaker and was able to get the word count in PM...

I thought maybe the copy/paste from WP to ID was the problem so I tried creating a new document in ID and typed in some text and I *still* couldn't get the Info palette to display *anything*...

Suggestions?

Thanks...

I have this (very) vague recollection that this was one of the issues fixed by v3.0.1. Are you running that?

Yeah...I did disover yesterday that dragging the palette from my custom palettes back to the master set on the right hand side of the screen seems to turn it back on...I thought I'd tried that when I was playing with it before but perhaps not...

It works fine for me, but I'm using 3.0.1 on a Mac. Don't have the PC version.

I've seen reports that suggest that stashing the palette to the left side of the monitor (that's where I keep it) helps with this problem. Like Shane, I seem to recall that there are some bug-fixes related to this in 3.01. If it does appear blank, try collapsing it to the edge of the screen and opening it again.

Thanks for the suggestion...I thought I'd tried that when I was playing with it before but perhaps not as when I did that yesterday, it finally turned itself on...

At least now I know it's not just me...'-}}
