Summary0014483: Guide Manager > Column/Row> Selection is grayed out
DescriptionI am getting interesting behaviour in using the selection function in; Guide Manager > Column/Row > Selection.

It remains grayed out if I just set up and select text frames or shapes, and try to deploy "Selection"; the "Selection" option remains grayed out.

The workaround: If I have a selected text or shape frame on the page, the "selection" option remains grayed out - but if I then move that frame using the mouse, "selected" becomes available. Moving the frame makes the system recognise that the "selected" option should be available. Moving via the keyboard fails to get the system to recognize the selectable frame.

Alternative workarounds 1. Have a selected frame on the page and drag a single guide from the ruler onto the page - "selected" will become available.

Alternative workaround 2. Have a frame not on the page. Move it it onto the page - "selected" will become available.
Steps To ReproduceHave a selected frame on a page. Open Guide Manager > Column/Row > Selection. "selection" will be grayed out. Move the selected frame and "Selection" will become available.
