Hi all,

When I'm working on the InDesign Auto-size panel and try to apply Height only it always crashes. I have attached a screen recording that will explain the problem and also the steps I have followed.


  1. Remove all Typefi plugins from plugin folder.
  2. Open Indesign CC 2019
  3. Open a new document(make sure there are no Typefi plugins in Window bar)
  4. Add new text frame with 2 columns.
  5. Add some texts on it(but don't fill the entire line)
  6. Next create a anchor on next line and add some text(but don't fill the entire line)
  7. Then go to Type->Paragraph styles and open the panel.
  8. Create a duplicate style of Basic Paragraph style.
  9. In Duplicate Paragraph style go to Indents and Spacing  and change Align to Grid to All Lines.
  10. Apply those styles to the texts.
  11. Next go to Object->Text Frame Options-> Auto-Size and change the Auto-sizing to Height only.
  12. Press OK in InDesign CC 2019 it won't crash.
  13. Do the same in Indesign 2020/2021 and then InDesign will crash.


Thank you.
