Numpad bug with paragraph styles
Loading an old Indesign file (version 2016 or older) in the new Version Indesign CC2020 causes a new bug.
1.) I use Indesign CC 15.0.1 (2020)
2) Open an old file of Indesign with many defined paragraph styles (from 2016 or older) --> try to edit some texts use text cursor klick in a textbox and type a 1, a 3 or a 4 on the numpad.
3) I expect that the numbers 1, 3 or 4 to be typed.
4) The paragraph style changes to another style without any shortcut set in the file or the paragraph style.

This bug still exists!

I have experienced something very similar, but not with the numeric keypad, rather with the letter "r". Typing the letter "r" causes InDesign to change to a different paragraph style. Then you cannot type the letter "r" while in that paragraph style, nothing happens. This is happening with more than one document and more than one user in our office. MacOS Mojave, InDesign 2020, 15.0.3 (updating to 15.1.1 did not solve the problem). We have never had shortcuts assigned to our paragraph styles.
I solved the problem by deleting the paragraph style it was jumping to, then re-creating it. I was able to import this new paragraph style to two other documents having the same problem, then deleted the old corrupted paragraph style and replaced it with the new one (using the delete button from the paragraph style menu), and the behavior is gone in those documents also.
This seems like a paragraph style bug.
