Same thing happening here. Running a Mac 10.12.6, Indesign CC 2019. On a fresh start of Indesign, Command N will not start a new document, have to go to File > New Document. Once I've opened a document, Command N works for new documents, until I completely quit Indesign and start fresh again. I found today that on a fresh start of Indesign, if I immediately close indesign (not quit) and reopen, then Command N works until I completely quit and start fresh again.

As a manager at a printing company, this "feature" is bound to cause problems and cost us money in the event we have to re-run jobs due to something moving/scaling/changing. This should be off by default. Luckily I caught it when adjusting margins, prior to burning plates for a job.
