If you do a lot of text editing, once you try drag-and-drop text you can’t live without it. To see if this feature is enabled, go to your Type Preferences (InDesign [PC: Edit]>Preferences>Type), in the Drag and Drop Text Editing area, and click Enable in Layout View if it’s not already selected.
Now just select some text, click-and-drag that text, and drop it when an insertion point appears at your desired point. Cool and a lot faster then Cut and Paste.
