Why is the text shifting down slightly when I open a doc & go to edit the text, this is incredibly frustrating & time-consuming. I have restarted the program yet it is still happening??

Does the text shift inside the frame—or the text frame itself?

 

If the latter, then you may experience this issue:

In which case, check if you're using Magnet or corporate security software, which can cause this problem.

text shifting down slightly

 

Hi @fh-incentives , Do you mean shifting down relative to the text frame? Check the Text Frame Options First Baseline Offset setting—it determines where the text starts relative to the frame:

Ae you using the exact same fonts from the exact same source? Different versions have internally-defined ascents that can differ from version to version (tends to happen with open source fonts that are constantly being updated... e.g. newer versions tend to set the internal ascent bigger than previous versions to accommodate more additional multi-language accents/glyphs). This causes issues with InDesign's text boxes when the setting for First Baseline offset is set to Ascent.
