find/change text missing search: selection
after making a selection, the Find/Change text dialog sometimes does not offer Selection in the Search dropdown. It will be present under GREP and Object, but not Text and Glyph. Closing/reopening Find/Change does not fix it. Restarting InDesign usually fixes it...until it goes missing again.
I have the same issue. This is incredibly infuriating, especially when working with tables.
This is still happening in the latest version of Indesign — v17.0.1 / 2022.
Restarting works for one find/change, then back to the same issue.
Trashing preferences also only works one time.
Please fix this up ASAP – this is a huge time waster when working on a project such as a book.
Seems it has been happening for the last 5–6 years now. Please fix this Adobe.
