    This bug happened to me in cc 2019. Fortunately closing the panel and reopening it made it behave. But apparently this bug is not completely gone.

    We have fixed this issue for the upcoming release. You can test and try the fix in the Beta build posted on the InDesign Pre-Release program. Follow the below link for joining InDesign Pre-Release program and getting access to the Beta build of InDesign.

    It really is quite annoying but i'm not only having it in the find / replace window... also sometimes within EasyCatalog (InDesign Plug-in) or even other programms that are not related to Adobe.

    Another case that's not listed here:
    You can only write one letter and what ever letter you type after replaces the first letter.
    You can spam all you want and will always stay at 1 letter.

    it's either good job adobe or good job apple :·) - who knows - we'll probably never find out... (just like the flickering bug :) )

    I also have this problem. It works fine the first time you try to find something but if it can't find it and you then key something different into the find box, it types the word backwards and it's the backwards word it tries to find.

    You have to close the find box down and then do a fresh find and it works.

    This has been like this for some time.
