    Just updated to InDesign 17.0.1. The bug is still present. Makes InDesign virtually unusable.

    Latest prerelease 17.1.0.47 says this bug has been squashed:

    [macOS Only] Text sometimes disappears while typing/editing

    Not for me it hasn't!

    Bug still present in pre-release ID 2022 Mainline_x17.1.0.28.

    Anyone else who can please download the pre-release and if the bug is present follow this link to post a bug report: https://forums.adobeprerelease.com/indesign/discussion/2030/indesign-and-incopy-2022-17-1-0-28-builds-are-now-available-to-download

    If more of us do this Adobe might finally recognise that this serious bug actually exists.

    Unfortunately the font cache solution didn't work.

    Text still disappears randomly.

    I cannot believe that Adobe can't reproduce this issue on an M1 Mac and find a fix.

    Don't want to speak too soon, but I think I may have discovered a fix. I use FontExplorer X Pro, but I opened FontBook and validated all fonts as suggested. This didn't work for me. I then opened FontExplorer and made sure only the System fonts were active. I then used the Tools menu in FontExplorer to clean the System font caches. It did this and then restarted my Mac.

    Since that restart I haven't seen the bug reappear.

    For the moment I am only allowing Creative Cloud to activate fonts needed by InDesign files. Over the next week I will activate any other fonts I need using FontExplorer and see if the bug reappears.

    If you Google there are many ways to clean the System font caches other that via FontExplorer.

    Unfortunately this bug is still present in the latest prerelease: InDesign 2022 v 17.0.

    Very disappointing. Makes InDesign virtually unusable.

    Restarted my Mac and the Prerelease tab showed up. InDesign 2021 (Prerelease) now installed.

    Latest build at adobeprerelease.com is 15.1.2.221. That's 9 months old. The release notes for 16.2.1.100 tell you to instal via the Creative Cloud app. I followed all of the instructions in the release notes and the Prerelease tab does not appear in the Categories section.

    Same here. Like wading through treacle using the non-M1 version. Please fix.
