I'd try what Karen suggested. trashing the prefs.

Also, Is it possible to design it in Illustrator? I don't know the extent of newsletter. But switching may save you if you've got a tight deadline. For newsletters, I actually prefer AI.

Keep us posted.

No, no vector artwork, just one little photoshop file and some picture files and text. It happened in all the documents I tried it on afterwards. Phooey. Found my InDesign installer discs. Yay. : )  This has never happened before. : (

Do you have vector artwork in your InDesign document (either Illustrator .ai native files or .eps files)? I know it sounds crazy, but vector artwork files can become weird/corrupted/twitchy. I've had it happen occasionally that similar things happen. Once I re-save the Illustrator files and then re-import them, everything is then fine. 

Good luck from me too,
