In the Paragraph Designer, for BulletIndent, when I try to remove the tab stop, it does not delete. When I try to create a new tab stop at 1", it appears for a moment, and then disappears.
Is there a fix for this issue?
The same thing happens when I try to create a new paragraph tag. The tab stops won't delete/set.
How exactly are you setting/deleting the tabs? Are you doing an Update All or an Apply in the Designer after making the changes? Only the Update All option will preserve the tab stop changes.
1. In the paragraph designer, with the BulletIndent paragraph tag selected, click the tab stop, and then click Edit.
2. In the Edit Tab Stop box, click Delete All.
The box closes and a different paragraph tag displays in the Paragraph tag selection drop down menu.
When I re-select the BulletIndent paragraph tag, the tab stops are unchanged. The same thing happens if I try to set a new tab stop.
Thank you for your speedy response!
It sounds like you have the cursor placed in a different paratag when you're trying to make the change. Either make a selection outside of the text frame [i.e. click somewhere in the background margins] or click into any BulletIndent paratag when trying to make the change.
I think what you are facing is a bug that was fixed meanwhile. As your version 126.96.36.1993, make sure to get the latest updates through > Help > Updates.
The latest Update by today is "Update 2" (2015.2 / Build 188.8.131.523. In this version this bug is fixed.
Thank you Arnis and Stefan for your replies. I tried both solutions, and neither fixed the problem. Unfortunately, on my system, Updates is dimmed and cannot be selected.

Thanks again Stefan! Such a speedy response! Link worked like a charm!
FM-184.108.40.2063: I encounter the same problem. MIF washing did not help.
It happens with all documents which where orginally created with an older FM-version (≤ 12).
It is however not a problem for new documents, into which I have imported ALL formats from the failing one.
So, Stefan, what the heck is going on here?
