Since updating InDesign CC to the most recent version (8 Jan 2014) I've noticed some intermittant bad behaviour in the character palette.
Changing a font family works fine, but subsequent changes made using the weight/style dropdown don't apply to the selected text frame.
Using the weight/style dropdown in the glyph palette still works, and is a good enough temporary work around.
The issue is only in this version of ID (my colleague's ID6 works fine), and hasn't yet occurred in any other CC applications I've tried.
The issue went away when I trashed preferences and saved settings files (http://forums.adobe.com/thread/526990) a few hours ago, but has since recurred.
My question: Should I stop syncing my user settings as well and start completely afresh?
I'm having this exact issue with both my work copy of InDesign CC (most recent update) and my home copy. As I'm a dedicated palette user, it's been difficult getting used to/being forced to using the top-screen toolbar controls as they seem to always work.
