Typing in measurements is ignored


If I type in dimension/s to set guides using Tape Measure Tool, offsets using Offset Tool, size of rectangles etc etc, they do not appear in the measurement box and are ignored.
The facility had been working without a problem for years, but has just stopped functioning.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the programme but the problem persists.


Might you have inadvertently disengaged NumLock?



Spot on!!!
I am too relieved to feel dumb!
Thanks a hep.


Lucky guess.
