Weight remains on text when exported to pdf even if changed to zero.
I am using InDesign CC 2019 14.01 x64.
Once a stroke weight has been added, if you then change the stroke weight back to zero, then when you export to pdf the pdf will have a stroke weight added to the text, even though the indesign document looks correct. It may not have the original amount of weight that was added, but it will definitely have what looks to be around a .2 weight added.
However, if you were to start a new document, then add stroke weight, then click edit - undo stroke weight, then it would export to pdf just fine. However if you saved the document with the stroke weight added, and then re-opened and changed the weight to zero, then when you export to pdf it will have a stroke weight still added (around .2, same as above).
So once you have saved a document with the stroke weight added, then no matter what you do the document will not print without the added weight.
If ANYBODY has any idea how to fix this then PLEASE let me know :) I was on chat for 4 hours but no luck. I'm really not trying to redo this 600 page book.
Thanks for reporting the issue. We are looking into it

In addition to this the stroke that should not be visible is kind of angular, and the letters themselves, too. The screenshot shows it.

I am experiencing this issue on 17.0
I am still experiencing this issue!
I have come to understand that when printing to pdf, it does not print the actual weight added, but prints a "faux bold", which perhaps is related to the following issue:
for me too

This can be fixed by not only setting the stroke to 0pt but also the stroke colour to NONE.
As soon as the Stroke has a colour and is 0pt i get this bug. (And it also shows in InDesign in my case, also in the PDF and the worst of all - yes it does print - and it looks horrible glitchy - i don't see an option to add a screenshot to an existing report :/ otherwise i'd do so)
The same issue in CC 2018 :-(

0 pt contour is bugged in CC2019
Apply a 0pt stroke to any text but give it a colour.
it will show AND export to pdf...
