Potential InDesign lock bug

I have noticed that when converting text to outlines, if the outlines are too small, the lock icon does not appear when locking the object. From what I can tell, this means I cannot unlock the object (unless I undo the action). I have attached two screenshots to show this.

 

Has anyone else had this issue?

Hi @fh37852989:

 

You can always unlock using the Layers panel.

I think the real question might be why are you still outlining fonts?

Thanks, that worked. Based on what I've read I agree I probably shouldn't be outlining fonts. Nonetheless, I'm glad I've fixed this issue.
