Non-Printing Layers in Italics
InDesign no longer italicizes the name of non-printing layers in the layers panel. This made a scan of which layers were printing or non-printing quick and easy.
With the 2018 update, it seems like non-printing layer names just display as a SLIGHTLY lighter weight of the standard layer name type, making it hard to tell which layers are doing what at a glance.
An update that clearly demarcates non-printing layers would be appreciated.
Fix is available in version 13.1 of InDesign.
Please update to the latest version available to you via Creative Cloud Desktop application.

I think, you mean, that the fix is available in beta builds :-)
And it is…
Note: Would be good to mention what the exact version number is where this issue is fixed.

This could be a bug, rather than an intention. Id file it under Bugs too.

In previous versions of InDesign, layers set to non-printing used to be shown in italic so it was clear right away that everything on this layer won't print. It seems like this feature has been removed in the latest update (Adobe InDesign CC 2018, V13) – could you please bring it back?
