    16.1 and having this problem. Seen some potential fixes but not 100% sure how to apply them! Thanks for your input everyone.

    [UPDATE] "At the top right, there is a gear icon. Click that and under Character, uncheck the Character Fonts option. This fixed it for me." - this appears to have worked for me also 👍

    I can re-iterate what Anon said below:
    "What worked: removing the Document Fonts folder (for a packaged indesign document) so no fonts were loading from the packaged Document Fonts folder. If even 1 font is still in the folder I get the problem, which also includes extreme lag when switching into or out of the text tool and selecting text."

    Bizarre, but sure enough I was working in a file that was from a packaged ID folder. I already had the fonts installed so I could remove the Fonts folder from the Package with no problem. Now Type tool is selecting with the shortcut and staying selected :)
