    I used the words "there" and "their" as an example, but words are not where the issue is. It appears as though this is not an issue when highlighting and changing words, but rather when highlighting and changing numbers.

    So if I were to select "$1,288" and replace it with "1,300", I'd have to type "11,300" b/c the first 1 doesn't type out.

    It is SO ANNOYING when you highlight a word and try to type and nothing types on the first key strike.

    In other words, if I highlighted the word "there" with the intention of replacing it with "their", it would read "heir" by the time I was done typing b/c the first keystroke (the letter "t") did not register. For it to read "their", I actually have to type "ttheir" b/c the first "t" keystroke seems to be an activation of the text tool rather than a keystroke.

    This is not happening b/c of a sticky keyboard. This is a glitch in the text interface that causes a lot of issues with creating typos.

    Please fix it right away! WHY does InDesign have to be so different than the other programs in the Adobe Suite? There are SO MANY instances of annoying little nuances like this. If it weren't for the booklet pagination features, I would stop using this wretched program entirely!
