Hello,

I seem to have gotten my LiveCycle Designer into a state where I can no longer select editable text fields (rimmed in orange) in the Design view. This was possible before, but currently the selection no longer works. The only way for me to be able to edit user-fillable text fields is to open the Binding tab and select the fields there. Only then I can edit the tooltips or the borders of the fields. Could someone help me reverse this setting? Thank you!

You can easily set these by accident clicking on these buttons on the status bar

I have exactly the same problem, just appeared today. Am working in ES3, have worked in LiveCycle for 3 years. So bizarre.

User error, of course: I had somehow (keyboard shortcut???) locked the fields:

Go to Edit, Lock - deselect whatever it is you have locked.
