Bug details

Can't duplicate and drag pages in pages panel

If I select pages in the pages panel, drag and duplicate to sit somewhere else within the document, it wont duplicate. Even though the + symbol appears as I drag, it only moves the selected pages within the document, it doesn't make duplicates/ Only if I drag and duplicate to sit at the very end of the document, will this actually duplicate. This is the first I've noticed this bug today.

    Updating to InDesign 14.0 on Windows has made this occur suddenly as well. I can still drag and drop pages but I can not drag and drop DUPLICATE pages unless I want to dump them at the end of the document (which you almost never want to do).

    To either duplicate or re-order pages CS5 will no longer allow me to drag the pages in the pages panel. I now have to use the right click option and choose from the menu to get it to do what I want. Is this a bug? I have re-started both InDesign and my computer to no avail.
