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.
Thank you for your patience all this while.
This issue is now fixed in the latest update (Id 14.0.1) of InDesign CC.
If you are unable to see the update notification yet, open the menu (three dots) from the top-right of Creative Cloud desktop application and click on ‘Check For App Updates’.
Once the update button is shown against InDesign CC, click on the button to update your InDesign to Id 14.0.1 for the fix of the issue.
Do let us know in the comments, if you face any problem with the new update.

YES! i'm having the same issue since upgrading to 14.0...if i wait about a full 30 seconds, it unfreezes. this also only happens the FIRST time i open a IND document. if i save, close and reopen, it doesn't do it.
Same probleme here. I hope they find a fix solution...it is really frustrating .

This is a known bug. Until they fix it, the workaround is to turn off the Control Panel or, if you need it, disable Character Font in the Control Panel Settings.
Same here. Hangs when trying to change text for the first time in a document when opened or new. Takes about a minute and then comes right, then if I go into Character it hangs again for another minute.
Windows 10. InDesign up-to-date.

I too am having this exact same issue on a Windows 10 computer. Previous version was fine so will have to roll back if no update is forthcoming. Spec of PC is an i7 8700K with 32gb of ram and Nvidia Quadro P2000.
Me too and it makes my whole program crash. This is ridiculous, I have had to reinstall previous version to get work done.

Me too. Using the text tool causes an ongoing freeze issue which is unworkable after updating to the latest version of CC InDesign. Have to crash the program and re-start to work on other things. PLEASE FIX THIS BUG URGENTLY!
SAme here, with all documents
Yes, very annoying. Please help!

After updating to InDesign CC2019, I notice there is an intermittent lag/freeze in the application. I'm experiencing this on two different Windows 10 computers, both highly capable with 16+GB of RAM, video, hard drive space, etc.
When working with any file, after a bit of time, the program simply becomes unresponsive. This is generally when working with the text tool, I believe. After waiting about 30-60 seconds, the program comes back to life.
I've got this same problem. It's super obnoxious.
I also had this problem. Disabling the controlpanel (ctrl-alt-6) fixed it. Opening the font panel is still very slow though.
j'ai exactement le même problème l'outil texte est très long à réagir.
Same issue after updating to v14.0 x64....15-20 second delay when selecting the Text tool. Also happens when I select the Character options dialog box. This issue is not related to any specific file, occurs with ALL files. FIX THIS
Same thing for me after update. On every document. Very frustrating. Please, when do you fix this?
I have this issue with ALL documents upon startup/open and text selection.
Whenever I click on a text box or the character options for the first time in a document, InDesign freezes up for a good 20-30 seconds. Sometimes I'm not sure if it's the bug that will eventually wake up or if it's an actual crash. Has anyone else been having this problem?
Same here after the last update....IDD CC 14.0 X64
