Properties Panel More Options
I quite like the idea of the new Properties Panel, but it would be great to have the options to have the "More Options" items to be expanded permanently. Right now the auto collapse once you change from item to item. I understand if you are working on a laptop, the fact that they auto collapse is helpful but when you are working on a large screen I don't want to keep looking for my options. Please add a preference that makes the expanded options sticky.
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update (14.0.2) of InDesign 2019.
If you are unable to see the update notification, open the menu (three dots) from the top-right of Creative Cloud desktop application and click on ‘Check For App Updates’.
Once the update button is shown against InDesign, click on the button to update to Id 14.0.2.
If you face any problems with the new update, do let us know in the comments.

You don't need to go back to 2018. There's still the option to turn back on the Control strip in 2019. Window>Control.
I completely agree please remove the auto collapse and add increment arrows to transform section
In InDesign CC 2019, the properties panel should keep the panels opened when we click on more options.
It's a total waste of time because you always have to click More options each time you want to select a hidden option like add space before for example. I'm still using InDesign CC 2018 because of that bug.

100 times yes. This is quite frustrating actually. Sure, many of these options weren't in the contextual control bar. BUT by moving everything to a right-handed Properties window —we are already losing horizontal real estate. I get nesting it in a 'more options' vehicle, but we should have the option to make said options sticky, so we aren't having to open another panel, or have to keep clicking 'more options'.

MAKE "MORE OPTIONS" STICKY! One less click in my workflow equals many less clicks over my lifetime.
In the new properties panel (CC 2019), make the [ . . . ] expansion button sticky. In other words, when I click it and expose more options I'd like it to *always* show the expanded options. It's annoying to have to keep expanding it every time (because 98% of the time I want to access the expanded options).
