No, this is absolutely NOT fixed. This issue continues to occur for me in BOTH Indesign 13 & 14. It affects Object Styles, Character Styles, and others. Please get this corrected. A quick Google search reveals that this has been going on FOR A DECADE at least.
Not interested in having to reset prefs once a week just to get basic functionality out of your software.
