Anyone know where I can turn off the Auto Styles interactive box on a text frame?

Adobe is messing with my flow.

 

I do newspapers in Indesign. At the start of filling in content on a newspaper I grab a range of individual word docs in the OS and drop them onto the page, rapidly click them off in a horizontal row, select them all and then apply body style with a hot key. From there I figure out where I'm going to put them and the rest of the formatting.

 

In ID2023 they've added the maddening "feature" of popping up the gray box with a "T" in it on the bottom of any story box where the contents are longer than the box draw on placement. It goes away if the user does any click/keystroke. Clicking on the box applies an Auto Style from the ether, and opens the Styles panes.

 

So instead of being able to smoothly go through clicks that each result in a text frame placement, I'm now having to frequently double click every time I place a longer story jsut to make the Auto Styles box go away. I'm a high actions per minute guy, and it's driving me up the wall.

 

I've rooted around in the prefrences and Googled, but haven't found a solution. I've gone through similar instances of this with Adobe's historic "smart" handles and doodads they love to clutter up frames with but I haven't found my way to a solution for this yet. If anyone knows how to make this stop I'll be eternally grateful

 

Phone shot included since any keystroke makes the thing go away.

Awesome that got it.

 

I guess my brain didn't connect the drag and drop with pasting/clipboard. Because I know I looked right at it and said "That can't be it." ;-D

 

Thank you!

This is in an illogical location.
It should be under VIEW > EXTRAS.
That, for me, would make sense. It's where you find all the other "amateur" things such as the CONTENT GRABBER.
;o)

THANK YOU! WhyTF is this not under the Type or Advanced Type section in preferences? These $%^&* programmers... this is the equivalent of changing the label design on the orange juice at the supermarket... then NO ONE can find the OJ!

Your right  a 'maddening' 'feature' this just happened to me... very annoying to have to get rid of a 'feature' that gave rubbish autostyle anyway! It seems Adobe are gradually trying to dumb down and automate a lot of their software with their pop up boxes of 'helpful info' to open it up to non -designers. Lets just hope it doesnt gradually turn into microsoftword !!

Liquid Layout, Autostyle Text, that frustrating Color Theme Tool that the eyedropper tool now defaults to (oh boy, 5 colors sampled from a photo?! Formerly required a design degree.) … and the bugs accumulate. I guess these things make a better looking bullet point list than "• Fixed a few of the bugs that we introduced in the last dozen updates."

Cannot agree more. That color theme default eye dropper is infuriating.
