Indesign shortcuts not working – in particular type tool (T)

 

Working in Indesign version 2020 on iMac (27 Inch late 2009) High Sierra v10.13.6

 

To select the type tool, I type in 'T'. The type tool is selected for a brief second then flicks back to the arrow. Essentially the shortcut for the type tool isn't working. I have to manually click the type tool in the tool box to use it. Very tedious and slow way to work.

 

All other shortcuts are working fine.

 

Any soultions out there?

Does it work in InDesign CC2019?

I am having the exact same issue. I also am using InDesign 2020 on an iMac. When I press "t" it temporarily switches to the type tool but then soon jumps back to the selection arrow. I don't remember having this issue with InDesign 2019.

Awitmer, are you working on an old iMac?

 

I work on an 2009 iMac at work and have this issue with the 't' shortcut. The problem is worse if I work off the server and less if I work on my desktop. At home I work on a 2018 iMac running Indesign 2020 and there's no problem with the 't' shortcut. For me, this issue is only happening on the older machine at work.

 

This 't' shortcut problem seems like a bug to me in the older machines. Maybe it is a problem with loading fonts? I'm not sure. Hopefully Adobe will release a patch that will fix it.
