Objects in InDesign are either:
- A) Part of text
- B) Separate elements unrelated to text
Determine which and adjust accordingly.
If you are unsure, it merely takes some deductive reasoning to determine where the object is.....
- Delete the text, is the element still there
- YES: Then it's not part of the text formatting
- NO: Then the element has been implemented via text formatting
- (undo the deletion)
If the object is not part of the text formatting, check layers. It's possible to have elements on various layers. Check for locked objects and locked Layers. It's possible lock objects in Indesign. Check Master Pages. Objects can be on master pages and not appear selectable on document pages.
If the object is part of the text formatting, then check paragraph rules, styles, etc.
No one here can blankety state how that element was created without examining the Indesign file.
