Forcepoint DLP affects copy and paste functionality in Adobe InDesign
Following deployment of Forcepoint data loss prevention software into our organisation, functionality for copy and paste in all versions of Adobe InDesign was lost. When pasting, text would lose all formatting and no longer be associated with style sheets. Anchored objects were lost. Some hidden characters e.g. indent to here were lost. Tables were also affected. If pasting into same document, pasted text would adopt whatever style sheet was currently selected. If pasting into a new document, text would default to Minion Pro. Partial improvement was achieved by changing Clipboard Handling preference from Text Only to All Information but this was not the solution, it also populated the Swatches palette with incorrect colours resulting from use of that feature. Full functionality was restored by updating exception rules for Adobe InDesign 2019 in Forcepoint.
