Distorted Text and Graphics in high sierra
When opening a previously created file, I noticed small visual artifacts in the rendering of vector graphics in the file. As I zoomed in to inspect it, the artifacts began jumping all over the place, and as I zoomed in further, text on the page began presenting the same behavior.
Using InDesign 2017.1, Build 184.108.40.206 on a 2016 Macbook Pro (2.9 GHz Intel Core i5, 16 GB RAM), running macOS High Sierra 10.13.
This is a macOS10.13 issue, specific for some Intel GPU cards. Apple has fixed(partially) this issue inside macOS10.13.4 released build.
Following are the workaround for resolving this issue.
1) Update your mac machine to latest macOS10.13.4. Here, Apple has fixed this issue to some extent. You will face very less number of rendering issues.
2) Disable GPU preview and set display performance as typical.
Once you have updated to macOS10.13.4 .You might still face some rendering issues. Since, Apple has not fixed this issue completely.
Please switch off GPU rendering for these cases and report a separate post for tracking.

Still no fix?? Seriously??? This is a pretty big issue considering it's DESIGN software...
Yeah, need a fix on this. This is getting pretty ridiculous.
This is also happening on Illustrator... when is this getting sorted? it is taking me twice as long to do my job.
Is it a joke? Wow. It will take years to fix it?
This post was addressed October 5. Its January 16 AND ITS STILL NOT FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!
"Yay! I love spending lots of money on Adobe products only to have them not work correctly," said NOBODY EVER.
having the sam problem...spent a lot of money
To sum up, I can't use InDesign CC now on High Sierra, and also InDesign CS6 doesn't work properly on latest the Mac Book Pro because it doesn't support Retina display. So basically I'm having to dig out my 8 years old PC to do the job on CS6. Come on, Adobe.
it's been months, i just can't believe we still have to ask you to fix this. this is so disrespectful.
Come on Adobe. Fix please. It has been MONTHS!
Using the product in general (moving a shape or textfield, etc.).
The shape is placed in an other area of the page and looks the same.
The actual result is a buggy rendering, even without zooming in or out or moving a shape, the render looks buggy. Images attached. It feels as if the program can't compute for the resolution of the screen which is not even Retina. My laptop is a Macbook Pro with Retina and I work on a connected screen that is not Retina.
Ever since I updated this and the OS of the laptop, things have been very buggy. It's become very infuriating, my colleagues have the same issues with Illustrator as well. A thing to be fixed or I think we will just roll back to previous versions and stop updating while things get fixed. Very disappointing.
Can this issue please be resolved ASAP? It has a serious negative effect on my workflow.
I am also having this problem, it is driving me crazy.

Indesign version 13.0.1
Errors in lines, shapes and images in different views – both normal and screen view, and full screen mode.
I have re-downloaded Indesign with any effect.

Can you please get around to fixing this? It's still an issue in High Sierra 10.13.2
I am one more on the list experiencing the same issue as many other users. And it seems that everybody has been struggling with this for months. Please fix this, Adobe. It's your job to make sure your softwares work accordingly.
Same with full screen gray, can't replicate though
Please provide an update. 3 months to fix this is not good
Any updates on solution to this issue? It's driving me insane.
