Haven't upgraded yet - not sure what step and repeat function - can you elaborate on your method?

Any steps we can follow to recreate?

 

What OS?

Common fixes going from file created in version to version

Old version of InDesign - export to IDML

New version of INDesign - open IDML

step and repeat was not working even if I created a new file so was not a 'heritage' issue
however, it is now working!! very strange as I tried several files (incl new) and had restarted indd it case it was a glitch …

for ref:
step and repeat is a command in the edit menu which copies (repeats) text/pic boxes in adjustable quantities and measurements, can be very useful when you need to be accurate

Yes - there's also another way and some people refer as step and repeat (erroneously)

But seems to be working now - glad it's ok for you now.
