I know this is a user forum but can I just say this release is the most buggy I think I have ever experience with CC. At least they continue to charge us full value though.
Today's issues with a colleague.
Opening a document with missing fonts. We think indesign is attempting activate them but something goes wrong and there fore the document does not open. Force quitting and relaunching the document then opens and the fonts are activated.
It just dson't work! We can write some nonsense and its not underlined as a spelling mistake making it useless.
Any thoughts on these two?
Windows 10, powerful computer, it aint the hardware.
Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing the version of the InDesign? Do you see this behavior while working on a specific file?
I'd request you to follow the suggestions on this community post & let us know if it helps to improve the performance of the app.
What iOS are you working on, have you done all the updates and fixes through Adobe CC?
I am having some really annoying issues in Indesign 2022. My drop down menus will not work unless i double click and hold... and the dropdown when it eventually appears does not go away ( once i use the same process to get another drop down window ) I cannot right click to edit tables... I work in finance and i need to have these issues fixed ASAP. What are my alternatives? Read online, reset preferences, that did not work. I just need some definitive way of resolving this as my work is extremely time sensitive. PLEASE HELP
Sounds like there could be background interference at the input device level. Have you tried rebooting the computer?
I have restarted my computer at least twice. The problem persists.

Read online, reset preferences, that did not work.
How did you reset preferences?
You must quit InDesign and relaunch it while holding down the Shift, Ctrl and Alt keys [Windows], Shift, Ctrl, Alt and Cmd keys [Mac] until you see a warning message asking for confirmation.
I have the exact same issue, which has rendered InDesign unusable for me atm.
Adobe do you have a fix for this?
okay, the "cannot touch tables" is usually that the table is nested inside of another empty frame box- or even inside of another text or graphic frame.
someone has usually copy and pasted the table structure in the page INSTEAD of placing a standalone table and positioning where it ought to be - i have to redo those tables for the sake of editability down the line.
as for drop down menus, have you checked the Interface options menu? Auto-Show Hidden Panels may need to be checked on.
Our entire department is lamenting updating to Creative Cloud 2022. It's HORRIBLE. Consistently having to force-quit because INDD hangs on saving. We have to watch the modification date in the folder and then force-quit to exit INDD. Also we constantly have link modification issues when links haven't been touched. Acrobat is unstable...also constantly having to force-quit and it consistently won't let us save over a file saying it's in use even though the entire application has been killed. This is a sickening update. If you're not on 2022 don't do it.
Through your Creative Cloud management app, roll back to 2022 ver 17.1, or 2021 ver 16.4.2, or whatever earlier version that ran well for you and is available through your CC subscription.
Thank you. We thought of that. Had a department meeting about it in fact. Unfortunately, we have thousands of products in 28 languages, many of which are created or modified with 2022 by our stable of designers. We cannot easily drop back to another version when the alternative is converting all the work we've done and dealing with the issues with that process – and there are issues that come up with converting files especially in languages. Also, at least for Acrobat, we cannot drop back. Won't let us overwrite the 2022 version; believe me we did try. I did drop back to an earlier version of 2022 INDD because of the glitches I encountered. Didn't help. Please just hear me: It's been months of frustration with CC 2022. It is, as the OP stated, the buggiest version any of us in our department has ever worked on, and we all have been in the industry 20+ years, most of us switching from QuarkXPress or Pagemaker to InDesign when it came out. With 2022 it's a daily struggle just to get a simple project completed with the laundry list of bizarre behavior in CC.
Your INDD files from the problematic 2022 Ver 17.2 should open fine in Ver 17.1. Version 17 is version 17.
If you want to drop back to 2021 Ver 16.x, then you'll need to open an IDML version of the INDD layout file. (File / Save As / IDML and it saves your layout in InDesign Markup Language that can be opened in versions all the way back to V 6.)
RE: Acrobat, we don't recommend rolling back. The current version (released in March) corrected a lot of serious bugs and improved its utilities. Version 2022.001.20117 is the current version, and its very stable.
Hope this helps your organization make the best decision.
