Ungrouping deletes all items
Using Adobe InDesign CC up-to-date on a PC running Windows 10.
- Ungrouped group of text boxes + image boxes.
- All text in boxes disappeared but outlines remained. However in the layers you could see that they were deleted.
Strangely enough, by deleting a different hidden layer, I could ungroup the group and they would not be deleted.
Definitely the weirdest InDesign bug I've seen to date.
Any help would be appreciated!!
Just had this problem and I think I figured it out. It seems when you ungroup, the text/images go back to the layer they were originally in; if you have visibility off on that layer, it will therefore look like they have been deleted.
If you have this problem, check any of your hidden layers; make them visible and see if the group reappears. Once found you can move them back into the layer you had the group in.
This just happened to me, but I don't even have outlines. The top grouped object is still there, but the other objects that were grouped are completely gone.

This is happening to me as well. I am on Indesign 18.2.1 on a PC. @Adobe Please fix ASAP as I am having to manually drop in linked files again to try and work around this bug.
Same with me but I have a group of images boxes. When ungrouped, all contents disappear, and only frames remain.
Once I click elsewhere, the frames disappear too - nowhere to be found.
So much weirdness.
Same issue here. Did you ever resolve this issue?
