I am having this exact same problem now and it is ruining my life. HELP!!!!
@HD Schellnack – I wonder, if this is related to the following feature:
Hover Scrolling in InDesign CC: It’s a Feature Not a Bug
by: Kelly Vaughn | October 24, 2013
Uwe, I fixed your link. That is really scary.
@Peter – thank you for fixing the link, didn't know it was screwed up…
Yes. This is a very scary and dangerous feature. I'm all with Brigitta Kahn in the comments section at Indesignsecrets:
One of the things that makes me hesitate using InDesign CC at all.
And this feature is also in Illustrator CC and a few other CC products…
See Kelly Vaughn's comments on it:
PS.: Hope to get my links right this time. (I was logged out inadverently during this session from the forums)
Links are fint this time -- no idea what happened before.
And I did read all of the comments...
This is truly scary. Adobe, PLEASE FIX. This is not an enhancement, it is a BUG.
Please. Thank you.
I came across this thread while searching for references to a similar problem that I've run into. I wonder if this might be what the OP was referring to.
On my desktop system, the control panel font menu and the character panel font menu are synchronized (and style the type) until InDesign's new filter option is used to select a font. After that they are no longer synchronized and the menu that was used for the filter has no effect on the type.
This happens consistently on my desktop (Mid 2012 MacPro) but I can't replicate it on my laptop (Macbook Pro Retina). Both use Mavericks 10.9.4 and InDesign CC 2014 is newly installed on both. So perhaps it's a system issue and not an InDesign bug. Anyone else experience this?
Unfortunately I am having this exact bug.
Unable to select any font weights through the second character drop down (regular/bold/italic etc) but only by using the the little arrow in the first box with the fontname in it.
We're also still having this bug in CC2014. Some other smallish font-bugs as well, but this is very consistent and happens on all Desktops in the office.
