When selecting a different font via the font dialog drop-down, and you scroll up or down away from the currently selected font, after one or two seconds the dialog box will pop back to the currently selected font. This is highly annoying when you are searching/browsing for a different font to use and it keeps popping back to the currently selected font.
In ID 2018 it happened at a semi-annoying rate, but in ID 2019 it happens almost immediately after scrolling away from the currently selected font. This problem has escalated to bug status in my mind. Now annoying has turned to almost unbearable! Please look at this.
Thank you for your patience all this while.
This issue is now fixed in the latest update (Id 14.0.1) of InDesign CC.
If you are unable to see the update notification yet, open the menu (three dots) from the top-right of Creative Cloud desktop application and click on ‘Check For App Updates’.
Once the update button is shown against InDesign CC, click on the button to update your InDesign to Id 14.0.1 for the fix of the issue.
Do let us know in the comments, if you face any problem with the new update.
List of fixed issues can be found at: helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/fixed-issues.html
I installed the beta build (184.108.40.206) last week 11-15 and the problem was fixed. Now my Creative Cloud panel shows that I am up to date. Is this a safe build to be running on? Will you have an official update, or is 14.01 the official update? Since I am running on the beta build I just want to be sure something isn't going to go to crap on me.
Installed the latest beta build (220.127.116.11) The issue with clicking into a text box and ID freezing has been resolved. It is working correctly. I have Control Panel open, am not using the Properties Palette. I have opened and edited several documents in a row without issue.
Using the latest version 14.0.
Program opens fine. I can select different items in document, open menus, etc.
When I double-click into a text document, the whole program freezes. Text cursor stays and I can no longer select anything or close the program. I have restarted all adobe programs, restarted the computer and same result.
I expect to be able to edit the text and continue editing my document.
I cannot use 2019 at all. I have reverted to 2018.
Thanks for reporting the issue.
We have been able to reproduce this issue.

Just installed the latest updates to ID, AI and PS. Yes, you can now set the recent fonts to 0 (zero) in Illustrator. However, if you do set it to 1-15 it still performs the SAME WAY! It will pop to the top of the font list. You have solved only ONE PART of the problem—giving AI users the ability to turn off recent fonts. (FYI - works the same in all three applications)
Unless you move to the selected font in the list WITH the recent fonts at the top, recent fonts is essentially USELESS! Nobody is going to use it.
Please get it right! Make the list go to the currently selected font WITH the recent fonts showing. Only then will it function correctly. CorelDraw has done this for 20 years. If you can't figure it out, buy Corel Corp., and implement their code into yours!!
