No Font Spacing Between Words in InDesign 2019 14.0.x-2 on Mojave 10.14.x-4, Works fine in InDesign 2014 (v10.0.70) on Yosemite (10.10.5)
Posted it here too: https://forums.adobe.com/message/11049072#11049072
So, we've had this issue on our new MacBook Pro running macOS Mojave v10.14.4 ever since last year in August when we were on High Sierra (what came with the Mac).
Basically, InDesign is unusable with Gujarati Sangam MN on the 2019 version but on 2014 (v10.0.0.70) version on my old Mac (OS X Yosemite, v10.10.5) it works fine.
What's causing this issue?
We've tried the following:
- Contacted Adobe & Apple support: Apple said to contact Adobe, Adobe was unhelpful, they suggested we look up if the font was installed it it is on the new Mac using Font book.
- Updated Adobe InDesign 2019 to 14.0.2.
- Arial seems to work, so maybe it's something to do with this font on new Macs or InDesign 2019?
- Unrelated (because CC was showing trial expired from dropdown but a new account let us test the new update for 7 days, still same issue): https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/limited_access_repair_tool.html#
Also noticed some images aren't rendering properly coming from Adobe InDesign 2014 to 2019.
We simply cannot buy InDesign 2019/CC if this issue hasn't been fixed or can't be fixed.
PS: Is there a way to move all the font options back to the top of the window like in InDesign 2014, rather than on the right?

Adobe InDesign 2014 on old Mac Yosemite 10.10.5, renders fine (I made the file in this version and have been working with it ever since):

As you can see the spacing between words is perfectly fine, very annoying how Adobe InDesign 2019 isn't accomodating for this out of the box.

Any how, I'm thinking of just choosing a template from Adobe Stock templates to redesign this resume, since it's proving so problematic and is due to a refresh. This current resume I designed from scratch in Adobe 2014, but it doesn't seem that portable to 2019 version.
Thank you again, hope this can be solved or otherwise serve others too.
