Crash on using Align Distribute option
Help!! I used to be able to get the page tool, highlight multiple pages across a spread in the pages palette, then set the space between pages in the toolbar and use the distribute button to get even spacing between pages. Since updating to InDesign 2019 (v14.0.1), the “use spacing” measurement field never completely shows in the info bar, and every time I hit the “distribute horizontal” button, InDesign IMMEDIATELY crashes. I am using MacOS 10.13.6. Please help, I use this feature A LOT.
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update 14.0.2 of InDesign 2019.
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, click on the button to update to Id 14.0.2.
If you face any problems with the new update, do let us know in the comments.
The update seems to have resolved the issue, and the feature works as it did in previous versions. Thanks!

this must be a Mac OS X version bug.
I have no issues distributing all pages of a spread that are selected with the Page Tool with my German Windows version of InDesign CC 2019.
FWIW: also see this discussion at Adobe InDesign Forum:

InDesign CC2019(14.0.1) is used.
(Mac OS X 10.12)
When arranging the spread (multiple pages side by side), use the page tool terminated under the following conditions.
-Missing number fields in the page tool more than one page, and then in the Control Panel, specify interval
-Page tool, multiple page after you select the align icon in the Control Panel click
How to deal with
And without using the Control Panel, use the Align Panel to work with no problem.
Seen past posts about the lack of display in Control Panel, the "funny if you think a new" of was unable to repair any counterpart.
