In InDesign 2021 (the latest version both on Mac and Windows), I add a text frame and fill it with placeholder text which is set, by default, to Minion Pro - Regular.
Then I go to the find-change dialog box and set 'find format > basic character format > font style' to Book.
And guess what happens when I hit the 'find next' button? It selects all the 'regular' text. (The document has no text with the 'book' font style applied!)
Selecting another style -- e.g. Bold, Italic, etc. -- results, as expected, in the 'cannot find match' alert.
Looks like a bug!
The same problem occurs with GREP search as well. That's why my Protect local styling script brings unexpected results: 'book' character style is applied instead of 'None'.
Any ideas on how to work around it otherwise than removing the 'book' from the script?
thank you for pointing this out!
I can see this behavior already with InDesign 2020 on Windows 10.
Also with InDesign CS6 on Windows 10.

Also, I noticed that on different computers, the font style' drop-down list differs, and some items look very strange to me, for example:
Regular-389.344 ItalicSemiLight SemiCondencedappstudioCyrillic
Maybe InDesign reads some info from the installed fonts to display it as available font styles but something goes totally wrong during the process.Anyway, here I posted a bug report and invite everyone, who is willing, to vote for it.
