Hello, I am having a lot of issues in InDesign (latest version) with the type literally disappearing when I go to edit it! which makes working almost impossible. I have placed a link below to a screen recording so you can see what's happening. I have uninstalled creative cloud, reinstalled InDesign and nothing is working. HELP!

Hi @Chelsea22289000uvlq:

 

This is a known bug and is being worked on. Please see:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign-discussions/text-disappears-when-typing-in-text-box/td-p/121...

 

Are you using FontBook? From that thread:

1. Open FontBook, 2. Select all fonts 3. Right-click and select Validate fonts, 4. Delete the font that was marked as having Issues. 5. Restart InDesign.

Hi Chelsea,

in this very large thread Barb linked to some suggestions are made to ease the pain.

 

One of the more current ones was:

Deactivate all Adobe Fonts.

That seems to work for some users that do not use Adobe Fonts for the current project.

 

The other one was a keyboard shortcut to recompose all stories of a document:

 

Scroll down to "Keys for working with type":

Recompose all stories

 

Windows:

Alt + Ctrl + /

MacOS:

Option + Command + /

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
