Thank you for your patience all this while; we really appreciate your support!
Our investigation suggests that one of common reasons for the problem is that certain software (mostly antivirus and other security applications) and browser extensions happen to enable “Secure Keyboard Entry” on Mac machines due to which some keys such as Shift key in this case do not perform the desired action in InDesign.
For now I request you to follow the below provided KB doc for the quick workaround of the problem.
In the comments section many of the users have confirmed that disabling Webroot SecureAnywhere (a security app) has resolved the issue for them. Please note that, the problem may not be related to a particular software; there could be a different application or antivirus which might be causing the problem by enabling Secure Keyboard Entry on Mac.

Same issue. It happens randomly while I'm working midway through a project in InDesign. Proportional scaling and moving aren't working. I restarted my computer yesterday and it worked again. Midway through today the issue started up again. I don't have any antivirus or what not as mentioned resolved section. I do use internet browsers and am required to in order to do my job, so that's not a solution.
