It's working for me in InDesign CS6. See screen captures below:
First, make sure you're updated to InDesign CS6 8.0.1.
Then, try restoring your preferences. Here are instructions how:
That reset made clear what is causing the problem: it's the "Apply Leading to Entire Paragraphs" option, which is turned off by default, but i turned it on.
In CS5 i also had this turned on, so i guess it's a CS6 bug.
Can someone confirm the same behaviour with this setting on?
Notice that I put a hard return at the end of each line. I can't see in your video whether you've place a soft return (Shift-Return) or a hard return.
You wouldn't want to use the Apply Leading to Entire Paragraph option if you've placed soft returns when each there are different font sizes. You need different leading depending on the size of the font. The Cmd+Shift scaling effect increases and decreases both the font size and leading.
There is practically no reason in the world to have that turned on so
you'll be hard pressed to find anyone who does. I equate it with text
wrap only effects text beneath.
In the video i used soft-returns, but it's the same behaviour with new paragraphs.
I find the "Apply Leading to Entire Paragraph" option actually very handy, especially for controlling type using only the keyboard. I'm sure i'm not the only one who uses it (hence adobe made it an option), but it's personal offcourse.
Anyway, it's broke since CS6 (don't know about CS5.5 which we skipped) so i'll report it as a bug, let's hope adobe can / will fix this.
