Hi John,

Presume that is a left mouse click. Yes, you will see an edit label,
but that is to carry out some edit functions on the Text Frame object,
not the text.

If you want to edit text, use the left mouse button and double click.
That will allow you to directly edit the text.

Alternatively, just use Ctrl + T to get back to the story editor, or
click its icon.
