Select Tool to Text Tool bug

Hey, I think this is a bug or a dumb feature that I can't figure out.

When going from Select Tool (V) to Text tool (T) using keyboard shortcuts, the Text Tool automatically returns to the Select Tool after 1 second. This makes selecting text really annoying. I have to press (T), then click a text box, click it again, double click it and then click AGAIN in order to select text. It's costing me a lot of time.

Please tell me this not deliberate!

I am not seeing that behaviour - can you please let us know what version of Indesign - and also what Operating System you are using. 

 

Typically  - behaviour like this can be resolved by resetting your preferences 

  1. (Windows) Start InDesign, and then press Shift+Ctrl+Alt. Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files.
  2. (Mac OS) While pressing Shift+Option+Command+Control, start InDesign. Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files.

Hey, in Indesign do this:

Window > Workspace [Typography]

This is the only time the bug happens for me.

Hi Daniel,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Does it happen on a specific document or all? Did resetting preferences help?

You may also try disabling the GPU Performance under Preferences. Let us know how it goes.

Looking forward to your response.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
