On Export - "Save As" name field not consistently highlighted by default
- 15.1.3 version
- Open InDesign, open file, click on a page, CMD E to export.
- Expect "SAVE AS" field highlighted to be able to change export name, as with previous versions.
- Sometimes nothing appears to be highlighted, taking hitting TAB several times to get to the "SAVE AS" field. However, sometimes it is highlighted - so this is not a consistant problem - as sometimes it does come up highlighted. It does seem that when I first open a file / export - that it is not highlighted, but after that, it does come up correctly highlighted.
This is not a consistant problem, which is what makes it a problem. You never know if you can just type a new file name, or do you have to grab the mouse to get to the SAVE AS field, or try to TAB to the field, not really knowing how many times it takes to TAB over.
This issue got fixed in macOS Monterey 12.1 and upgrading to this OS (or later) will help overcome this issue.

This issue is still not addressed.
I just recently updated from Mojave to Catalina and this was the first issue I noticed. So unnecessarily frustrating to rename your Exports!
Have tested this on Big Sur too and it's the same problem.

This is incredibly annoying and such a loss of time. This used to work just fine. I hope there is a solution soon.
I have this problem too, and it's with all my Adobe CC products. Very annoying

Has this issue been addressed with the 2020 update? Same bug in Photoshop & Illustrator. Total production killer.
This SO messes up my workflow. 20+ years of using Adobe apps on a Mac, and now this change? It is definitely a BUG, not a feature. Fix it, please, Adobe!
Before upgrading to Catalina, when I go to save a file or export the name of the file will be highlighted.
I can then tap the right arrow and the cursor (blinking line) will go to the end of the file name but BEFORE the file extension.
But after upgrading to Catalina, the file name AND the file extension are both highlighted by default so when pressing the arrow key, the cursor goes to the end AFTER the file extension.
