InDesign CC 2019 (14.0.2) on macOS Extendscript bug

Where do we report bugs? Code below works fine on Windows and CC 2018 on Mac. But CC 2019 Mac it hangs the app once clicking the OK button in window 2. I've tried three different Macs including Mojave and High Sierra. All the same result. Pretty sure it's not just me. This bug has broken a number of my scripts that present a secondary window for saving settings.

var w1 = new Window("dialog", "Window 1");

var btnOpenWindow2 = w1.add("button", undefined, "Open Window 2");

var btnOk1 = w1.add("button", undefined, "OK");

btnOpenWindow2.onClick = function () {

    openWindow2();

};

btnOk1 = function () {

    w1.close();

};

w1.show();

function openWindow2 () {

    var w2 = new Window("dialog", "Window 2");

    var btnOk2 = w2.add("button", undefined, "OK");

    btnOk2.onClick = function () {

        w2.close();

    };

    w2.show();

}

Hi, report it there:

Adobe InDesign Feedback

If you are in InDesign Prerelease you could also report it there.

Did you try this code with older versions of InDesign on Mac OS X ?

Like InDesign CS6 on e.g. OS X 10.11.6 or below.

Uwe

Yes. Works on CC 2018 Mac, CS6 Mac, works fine also on Windows 10. Fails on Mojave and High Sierra as well. Definitely a problem with 14.0.2. Haven't tried 14.0 or 14.0.1

Thanks. At least I'm not going insane, it's not just me. Thanks for the link but I had posted another bug report. But I went to the link anyway, commented, and voted as you suggested. From what I gather at the link 14.0.1 is okay. Whatever happened it was at 14.0.2 release.

So would you recommend that your customers will roll back to InDesign 14.0.1 as well?

Yes I would recommend going back to 14.0.1, at least anyone who relies on scripting. This flaw breaks many scripts.

Hi William,

going back to 14.0.1 could be a mixed pleasure if I am looking at the long list of bugs fixed with 14.0.2:
