Bug with search and replace on locked layers
it seems I’ve found an InDesign bug that is creating some problem on a project for a customer.
I have a document with a table nested inside another table, the layer is locked but I’m able to find the text inside the nested table even if the “search on locked layer” is inactive.
I can also apply another paragraph style to the text inside the nested table (with the layer locked) and this is causing some problem because I need to change the styles of the text of unlocked layers with a script.
The issue is currently under review.
Thanks for reporting.
