Problem with changing the cursor to text

Hello. After running the latest version of InDesign CC 2019 v. 14.0, I have a problem with changing the cursor to text. It takes about 50 seconds. This happens each time you launch InDesign.

        This problem hasn't been fixed!!!!!! I think it has something to do with the new Properties panel... (a totally pointless innovation!!!!! In fact, it backs up the existing control panel which previously worked very well!) When you remove the control panel, this problem disappears. But how to work without a control panel?!! Panel Properties IS NOT A GOOD ALTERNATIVE!!!

        when selecting txt to change font - indesign becomes unusable - have to goto task manager/end task to start app again.

        The problem is still persistent here (14.0.1.209). My workaround: Set the text cursor first manually. After this (once) I can work with the shortcut.

        Still have the problem of the Text tool switching back to cursor tool (after I press the "T" shortcut), after a split second. This makes InDesign virtually unusable in laying out and designing. Please fix!!

        I have kept CC 2018 on my system because there are always issues. When I work in 2018 and select the Type Tool using "T", I can instantaneously start formatting. Whereas, using CC 2019, there is a significant delay, causing me to move the text box (since I am still haven't been switched from the Selection Tool) rather than selecting the text to format. It's a simple matter of lag time, as if the new text preview options are weighing down the system (that's a guess). I may rever to 2018 for most work until this is fixed. Very irritating, and it erodes time away from what used to be streamlined.

        Also having this problem. Text tool only stays active for a second or two then switches to the selection tool. On version 14.0.1 on mac os high sierra.

        Thanks for the update.
        I still have the following problem (after update 14.0.1.):
        When I want to switch to the type tool by typing the 'T' key, my cursor changes to the type tool only for about a second, then switches back to the select tool.

        Problem still exists - even after updating. It has become even worse! When clicking a text frame to change font size or selecting another typeface ID hangs and freezes ... and doesn't come back. I have to manually reset the program. Totally annoying and very disappointing ...

        I installed the beta build (14.0.1.209) last week 11-15 and the problem was fixed. Now my Creative Cloud panel shows that I am up to date. Is this a safe build to be running on? Will you have an official update, or is 14.01 the official update? Since I am running on the beta build I just want to be sure something isn't going to go to crap on me.

        Same issue - only on one machine though - 10 seconds delay for any type to appear.
        Other machine is quick to type except first letter must be typed twice in any new text box.
        checked task monitor and the machine itself is pretty much at idle the problem is within indesign itself
        Seems font related?
        Both machines running Win 7

        One suggested workaround has been turning off Control Panel. I can report this is not a fix. It worked fine for a while then the problem started again. The problem seems intermittent, like something suddenly kicks in and sucks all the juice out of InDesign. A distinctive feature is when selecting a large block of text the cursor will suddenly freeze part way through the selection.
