InDesign keeps pasting as Arabic Language Dictionary

This is happening to us in the CC2018 13.1 version.

I only saw one earlier example mentioned in the Forums (with CC2014).

Whenever a chunk of text, or text box is pasted into a fresh document, the language is Arabic. [Basic Paragraph] and all other styles have been set to English USA, and even though I do a find format/change format in the offending document, it still pastes as Arabic.

Exporting to .IDML, and reimporting did not solve.

Hi - Has anyone found a way to resolve this issue or find a work-around?  I am having all the same experiences described throughout this thread by others, I have my settings as English USA, have NEVER worked in Arabic, nor do I need to.

I am having the sam problem (in Dutch). It is not a preferences problem. It is indeed a glitch. I copy the Dutch text form a text box (Language: Dutch) and align left to another text box with the same spec's and the copied text suddenly switches to "Language: Arabic" with right aligned and "International Composer Alinea". Even though the standard preference is "Adobe Composer alinea". This makes me carzy!
Does somebody have an answer yet?
