We recommend updating Adobe InDesign 1.5.2 to include the following layout fixes:
After installing this update, you will be able to access the grabber hand in InDesign 1.5.2 using the same keyboard shortcut you use in Adobe Illustrator when working with text or text on a path. When you press Command + Spacebar and then release the Command key, you’ll have access to the grabber hand without losing your text selection.
Note: Pressing the Option key also gives you access to the grabber hand when you’re editing text.
Fitting text frames to text
The Fit Frame To Content command (Object > Fitting > Fit Frame To Content) will now resize rectangular text frames smaller, so the frames fit their text content. For more details about fitting text frames to text, refer to the ReadMe file in the layoutup.hqx archive.
Previously, you could set up a frame on a master page, apply the master page to a document page, and then fill the frame with text or graphics content. However, InDesign treated this action as an override of the master page item. If you changed the size, position, or shape of the frame on the master page, those changes would not apply to the document page. Now, in response to customer requests, InDesign no longer treats filling master frames with content as an override. For example, if you autoflow text into a master page frame that appears on 10 document pages and then resize the master frame smaller on the master page, all 10 document pages will automatically reflect the change.

Note: These updated plug-ins are compatible with all Roman language versions of InDesign, including Universal English, French, German, Swedish, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Danish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
