Redraw problems when having multiple Textboxes in a Textflow (Often used in DatabasedPublishing)
When placing a Text-Frame that Adjusts in height inside of a "Master-Textframe" (Often used in DatabasedPublishing to paginate Products that should not split between columns etc.) InDesign fails to redraw the placements of other Objects correctly - AND IT EXPORTS TO PDF!
This is horrible and has already lead to some huge problems in big Projects where we needed to work this way but InDesign made it a pain.
See attached Video for clarification.

Hello Abhinav Kaushik,
I just got the Update to CC 2020 as a test (not for productive yet) and could play around with the changed - it is working a lot better now than it did before (thanks for that!) buuut i noticed that there still seems to be a little bug - it updates correctly now if text is changed but not if all the text gets removed.
It doesn't change till you enter new text.
InDesign Version 18.104.22.168
- Added the new screenrecording i just sent you via mail. (just to keep others informed as well)
Yes - i can reproduce this any time in any kind of Textbox - I will create a small Testfile for you later today since this is really important to us and a big issue in DatabasedPublishing when paginating inline - basically it is impossible to work with in its current state.
