Are layers global or just confined to the individual page or spread 
where you created them?
Are layers created automatically when you create a text frame, 
graphics frame, etc?
I found the layers but when I selectively suppressed them in turn, I 
still couldn't select the items.
I am using 1.3.4 and the FreedomYug tutorial files seem to be from 
the 1.2 version.  Could this be
a factor?
