I'm in InDesign 16.0.1. (and prior)
I updated to Catalina OS on Mac. Option-Click no longer works as it should. It is supposed to straight duplicate one time. Now it is acting as a step and repeat and is creating 2 duplicates instead of one. Please help. I can't find how to fix this.
maybe the update of your operating system is overriding your custom keyboard shortcuts?
Hm. I'm not sure, because I'm on Windows 10, but Option + Click alone should do nothing at all if InDesign is running with the default settings. ( I translate this to my German keyboard on Windows so I think this would be holding the Alt key while selecting an object with a click. Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
The 2 duplicates could come from the Step-and-Repeat feature where perhaps value 2 is remembered for number of steps with an offset of 0 horizontally and vertically…

Thank you for your response. I checked the Step and Repeat setting and it was set to "0". So, I changed it to 1 just to see what would happen. That fixed it. Thank you! That was driving me crazy.
And for some reason it is doing it again. No matter what I change the Step and Repeat function to. Any other ideas? Thank you!
Sorry to hear about this. Does it happen with a specific file? Have you tried resetting preferences of the app?
If not, please try doing that. You may follow this help article(https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/setting-preferences.html) to reset the preferences of the app.
Let us know if it helps.
