I use CC 2017, but of course have seen this issue in other versions, Mac, and PC. When typing in a search term, like search term, the letters I type in show up backward, if at all, so mret chraes... which of course makes searching impossible. I can close the program, close the dialog box, and it still keeps coming up. It's so frustrating when you have 1000s of pages and need to find multiple words in between to keep opening/closing/shutting down

Its the same Problem but in CC2017. Please fix it too.
Do you mean searching in the Find/Change dialog box?
If yes, then please can you confirm (and try the solution) that this issue https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/31382155-the-find-function-doesn-t-work-properly-it-writ is same as yours?
If its same i can merge the two issues.
If you are referring to some other bug, then please elaborate a little more.
