Unable to apply multiple character styles after last update
I used to be able to select a piece of text, then open the Character Styles panel and select multiple character styles using the control key. I can successfully click. However, the styles selected are not retained. Only the first style I had selected is still applied. This is a huge bug affecting my impending book publishing.
I even cross confirmed it with two simple character styles - one [embolden] and one [italica] (aka bold and italic) expecting to be able to select both.
This DID work around October 2017 - we just did not notice that it had stopped working until March 2018 as we went thru final edits.

Yes it works, just see the picture attached. GREP is the only way I know to mix different caracter styles.

InDesign never allowed you to apply more than one character style to text. This has been a long-standing wish-list item, though.
