ScriptUI: Opening Dialog while dialog is open breaks InDesign
I'm running InDesign 14.0.2 on a macOS High Sierra (10.13.6)
In a script i created I have a Dialog. It has a button that opens another dialog.
Before my last indesign-update (CC 14.0.2) the second dialog would open and when i closed it, i could use the previous dialog window again.
Now with the Update when I open the second dialog and close it again, i cant use (or close) the previous dialog and it blocks me from using InDesign. I can move the dialogwindow around but thats it so i have to restart indesign.
I tested this on two colleague's system with the same InDesign version (14.0.2) and had the same result.
I tested this on a colleague's system with 14.0.1 and it worked as intended. (Also it worked for me before the update)
Attached is a testscript with the dialogs and a short videodemonstration.
Pls fix this, as we use this function to change settings in configfiles for scripts we use.

When is the real fix for this comming? We are still waiting :(
I had the update Cmd + N (New document) not work before I installed this hotfix and its still here after I installed it too. The shortcut is only broken if you use it with no document open, if there is a document already open it works fine.

So this is the second fix which is not mentioned in the CC app?
A few days ago, all major CC apps got an update, but not InDesign. Why didn't you make the two patches to one (small) update?
What's the problem to think as a user? To make his/her experience as easy as possible?

Unfortunately, this problem has been around for a while ... right after the start of InDesign, various key combinations do not work - just double-click to open a document in the Finder ... after that, the shortcuts described will also return
QUESTION: After the update Cmd + N (New document) & CMD + O (Open document) are not working anymore on my machine.
Can anybody confirm this?
Would be great to have Bugsfixes via CC App – most people will never know about that fix, as they don't read such special websites or similar

Thanks for the hotfix, but we really need a 14.0.3 official release to make this work for our customers. Is that coming soon?
Adobe doesn't learn even whilte they are just getting blown away by other software.. Use the cloud for what you intended it to deliver faster updates - otherwise get rid of it. Adobe what are you doing?
Give us the update like normal programs should get them :| - you even have your own client for that.
Implement a beta / stable channel or idk.. but this is just horrible.
It is the same response in every KBDOC fix - in my Company i don't even have the GREP fix yet because they are waiting for a propper update from Adobes side.
- PLEASE DO SOMETHING! - If you care and want people to stay...

Why would this fix not be issued in the standard way, via an update through the Creative Cloud app? No normal user will know to look for this webpage and manually run this update. We all appreciate the update, but it's not really "fixed" until all users will be sure to get the update, the way they get all other updates are... via the Creative Cloud app. Hopefully this is a quick fix for those that need it most, and a normal update will be coming to everyone via the CC app later?

This bug is seriously impacting my IDImposer customers NOW -- and they are not likely to to risk using an InDesign 15.0 beta for their production work. PLEASE fix this in a 14.0.3 auto update!

According to a user report this bug affects MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 as well.
Adobe make your JOB!!!!
Can you see that and bring a quick solution please.
Quand elle fait une erreur l'équipe de développement d'Acrobat est beaucoup plus rapide à réagir !
Uwe Laubender commented
what is the exact version of the prerelease beta build where the bug is fixed?
Will the bug be fixed with a 14.0.3 version of InDesign CC 2019? Or eventually with a hotfix for 14.0.2 ?
Good to see a fix comes in.

Please fix this bug asap, we can't use Indiscripts' BookBarcode PRO properly - thx!
Amaarora - please finally start using the cloud for what it was intended - faster delivery of updates and not this nonsense - its kinda like the only feature the cloud is good for and you're not using it for updates. Same problem with the GREP fix :|
Thanks for the fix tho
Amaarora - come on ... this has to be fixed in the current version 14 first ... no body I know uses prerelease versions for productivity work ...
Nice to seethe bug is fixed.
But is there a reason why bugs are not fixed in current versions? And users need to wait month for the release of a next version and till then are unable to use the software as intended? And in the past people that updated early to new releases where confronted with a lot of new bugs…
