1 - none of my key commands work, namely ones I've noticed are shift and option when scaling an object.
2 - the file menu, is whack. when I click on file, nothing happens but if I slightly move my mouse, it quickly shows the menu but then when i move my mouse again it disappears so l can't access anything in that menu.
between those two things, it's basically rendered my ID useless...
We are sorry for the trouble. We would request you to please try signing out of InDesign and Creative Cloud Desktop app, restart the machine and then launch InDesign from the Creative Cloud app and see if that helps.
Please also share the version of InDesign and the operating system you're working on.
Does that happen with all the files or with a specific file?
