Agreed. I'm finding as time marches on that we'd like to make nice looking forms or catalogs for customers that have interactive pricing. We also need to print such forms or catalogs. Excel is a pain in the backside for creating catalogs (unless duplex corner-staple becomes acceptable). This leads towards us making the same catalog in both InDesign and Excel. There are several thousand line items to update when we make company-wide price changes, across both files. Super confusing pain in the backside. I'd rather make this catalog once in InDesign and have it translate simple table calculations into interactive PDF form elements.
Thank you for reporting the issue.
We are currently reviewing it.
My setup did not meet condition 1, yet I still have the same problem. The lack of keyboard response is noticed after opening a document from a folder, while InDesign is already open, and also clicking on InDesign (multiple times) to get its attention. However, creating a new document does not appear to create this problem. If any kind of pop-up message happens within InDesign, then the keyboard issue is not present. Clicking on another app and then clicking back to InDesign will also clear the keyboard issue. Did some testing and found that matching condition 1 above appears to alleviate the problem for me. I'm using Windows 10.
Thank you for your support all this while. The issue is now fixed in the latest update of InDesign.
Please upgrade to the new InDesign 14.0 from your Creative Cloud Application.
If you are unable to see the update yet, click on the menu (three dots) on the top right corner of Creative cloud app and click on “Check for App Updates”.
Let us know your feedback in the comment section.
Thank you very much. The KBDoc update script fixed the problem for me.

I've observed this as well with InDesign 13.0.1. Even crazier, I changed the paper size and InDesign did change the size from 8.5 x 11 to "Defined by Driver" ...after the second setup. However, the stated paper size is wrong from what the printer told it. InDesign states 51 x 66 picas, but the printer is set for 17 x 11 (102 x 66 picas). The printer is a Xerox Versant 180 via Fiery EX-i v1.1.
