    Background Task panel pops up when copying text

    myDavey Level 1

      Hello,

      I tried asking in the regular forum, but didnt get much feedback - So, I want to take this question to the next level.

       

      Recently something very funny started happening in my InDesign (Mac OS 10.8 - InDesign CS6)

      Everytime I copy text the backround task panel opens up like this:

      It happens when copying using Cmd+C and when using context menu

       

       

      After a little digging I found the cause of the problem,

      I have "exportPop" script by John Hawkinson (found here) running at startup which opens up the task panel when a document is being exported. When I disabled it, I stopped getting the task panel.

       

      However:

      1) I've been using this script for a while now and never had this problem.

      2) Why should copying be considered like exporting?????

       

       

      If anyone can shed light on this topic, I'd really appreciate it

       

      Thanks

      Davey
