Can't Select Text Box Anymore - Adobe Indesign Windows

I have InDesign CS2 and just starting out as a user. I have added 3 text boxes OK. I could select them and move them around with no problem. But then all of of a sudden I can't select them anymore, I just one text box which is my whole project. What did I do wrong. What happened? Gary...

    Default Can't Select Text Box Anymore

    I have InDesign CS2 and just starting out as a user. I have added 3 text boxes OK. I could select them and move them around with no problem. But then all of of a sudden I can't select them anymore, I just one text box which is my whole project. What did I do wrong. What happened?

    Did you put them on a master page?

    Bob,
    Thank you for the reply. I think I figured out what I did. The last thing I did was to add a 3 pt rectangular border around my text boxes. I guess that means that all objects internal become grouped together. I deleted the border and now all is OK. What is a master page?

    You can still use the border, but put it on a lower layer so it isn't in
    the way.

    Master pages allow you to have the same info on all pages.

    Apparently you're quite new to all this. I'd strongly suggest purchasing
    a copy of Sandee Cohen's Visual Quick Start Guide and reading through
    the manual. If you didn't get a hard copy, it's availabe as a PDF on
    your installation CDs.

    Bob,
    Yes, I just started using InDesign today. Did the Visual Quick Start Guide come with the software package or where do I purchase it.

    Try Borders or Amazon.com. You might want to a wait a little bit. I'm
    sure the CS2 version will be out soon.
