This shouldn't be relevant to the problem except that one of the older sections has some text frames with internal columns that I need to adjust.

Hi Gary,

What's happened is that a number of things have been pulled out of the Properties palette to make it simpler. There is now a "Content Properties" item in the Windows on the toolbar (F3).
For Text frames, this will show the Text Properties palette, and for Image Frames, the Image Properties palette.
