    My comments below might seem a bit out-of-place, because they are. :) They were from my own posting of this, now merged with this one.

    The attached image describes the situation, where the normal expection is that if I press, e.g., a letter "a", the text is replaced with a letter "a". Instead, it does nothing with the first keypress, besides hiding the OpenType icon. Only after the second keypress the text is replaced.

    The de facto standard on Windows (and Mac, I presume) text editing is that you can select a word (e.g., by double-clicking a word) or any part of text, and then if you start typing, the selected word disappears and is overwritten with your typing. I.e., when pressing any character key when a word is selectd, it is replaced with the respective character and the text selection is emptied.

    However, the new OpenType feature floating icon prevents this. If I select text inside a text frame, the OpenType icon appears. If I then press any key, it does nothing with the first keypress but closes the OpenType icon.

    This is very unintuitive, as for years you have been able to start replacing text by just selecting it. This constantly leads me to write words with the first letter missing, as it was lost in the OpenType icon closing.

    The keypress when the OpenType icon is showing doesn't seem to do any action, so perhaps this is just a bug?

    True, it works if I remember to press the Alt first and then drag. It's hard to remember, though, that when duplicating across pages that you must first press Alt, and then drag.

    Forgot to add: InDesign CC 13.1 on Windows 10 version 1709. But this feature has existed for many, many years already.
