    This bug has been getting me ever since updating to indesign 2020.
    I'm on mac OS high sierra but my boss is on the newer OS and we have recreated it on his computer too.

    I figured out how to re-create the problem precisely. It's to do with auto sizing text boxes and happens every time you try to flow on text from a text frame or a table (i.e when you hit that little red plus icon on the bottom right). It only happens if your default (or selected) text frame object style (the one you're going to flow the text to) has auto sizing turned on (mine was set to height)......... then you will break all the undo functionality after that, in current document you can only cmd + z back to that buggy 'load placed cursor' attempt. in any other documents, undo will be greyed out, even if you start a brand new one.
    Try to close a document now with cmd + w and the whole thing will crash.... (thankfully, as you need an indesign restart to get any undo functionality back after that.)

    ADOBE people it needs to be fixed urgently .... at least for now I know and can turn off the auto size by default, but I use it all the time so this is very annoying.
