Copy and paste text from one file to another changes word wrap in InDesign 16.2.1 on mac OS Catalina

I am copying text from a source InDesign file into a different ID document to update the document. Same OpenType font, same text box width (no page or column break), same paragraph style, same everything, yet the text wraps differently and there are different line breaks in the pasted text. Why would this happen? I thought I fixed one instance of this when I restarted InDesign, but it's happening again after another restart of my computer and InDesign.  It is troubling for various reasons, and I don't understand why—or how—it happens.

Hi lailah48890588,

thank you very much for this screenshot that I am posting here inline:

I do not think this is the same issue Fritz Hansen has.

 

Instead this problem points to a differnt bug/issue. The symptom of that bug is the difference in handling of the first baseline option in a text frame. The cause could be a mismatch between activated fonts from the Adobe Fonts service and downloaded font files from e.g. Google Fonts with basically the same name.

 

Read through my reply here where I do a comparison of a needed Roboto font activated only with Adobe Fonts and the same Roboto font style provided with a font file downloaded from Google Fonts:
