Pasting text resets itself after changes are made.

Hello -

 

I'm working on an indesign file that I have been using for years. I go into it make the appropriate changes, and everything is good.

I would cut and paste from PDF files or Word files, with no issues. save it, and export it when I am done.

 

Recently (within the past 2 months), when I would paste new text into a new text box, the box would take the text initially, I could make changes to it, and then after a slight pause or if I change tools, the look of it would revert back to the original pasting of the text.

 

 

Just to provide an example:

I could paste this:

 

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Phasellus varius libero at sapien pretium, ac volutpat tortor tempus. Morbi facilisis dui ut dolor efficitur vestibulum. Duis fringilla, nisi vitae pretium tristique, enim justo eleifend nulla, ut sodales risus urna at metus. Etiam sed mattis purus. Suspendisse iaculis, ante sit amet venenatis sagittis, tellus leo ornare urna, vulputate tincidunt nisl lorem ut ex. Sed interdum, lorem sit amet ornare varius, nisi mi finibus ante, eu egestas massa libero vitae dui. Aliquam elementum lorem enim, et sagittis urna venenatis sed. Duis fermentum efficitur lacus, eget pharetra justo tristique ut. Suspendisse ex leo, pulvinar ut tortor sed, porttitor convallis ligula.

 

I would then make simple changes, like:

 

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Phasellus varius libero at sapien pretium, ac volutpat tortor tempus. Morbi facilisis dui ut dolor efficitur vestibulum.

 

Duis fringilla, nisi vitae pretium tristique, enim justo eleifend nulla, ut sodales risus urna at metus. Etiam sed mattis purus. Suspendisse iaculis, ante sit amet venenatis sagittis, tellus leo ornare urna, vulputate tincidunt nisl lorem ut ex. Sed interdum, lorem sit amet ornare varius, nisi mi finibus ante, eu egestas massa libero vitae dui. Aliquam elementum lorem enim, et sagittis urna venenatis sed.

 

Duis fermentum efficitur lacus, eget pharetra justo tristique ut. Suspendisse ex leo, pulvinar ut tortor sed, porttitor convallis ligula.

 

Maybe even change font type or size, and when I was done, and without hitting CTRL-Z, it would revert back to the original style.

 

If I adjust the text box, the changes would reappear.  It's frustrating.

 

If anybody knows anything about this, please share.

 

Thanks

If this is happening consistently, can you make a video of it so we can better assess?
