It's not happening to me on a Macintosh. I have no problem double-clicking to enter and select text. Have you updated to InDesign CC 9.2?
I don't think there is a preference for this behavior, I think it's the default.
But have you tried restoring InDesign preferences?
I've seen at least one other user post a similar complaint a month or two ago.

ID team is aware of this issue and working on it. I really apologies for the inconvenience caused.
Dinesh, if you are working on it, can you also make the team aware of this issue:
When selecting a swatch from the pulldown on the upper main task bar, I make my color selection, then go over to the toolbar to select the Selection Tool (V). I click it, and nothing happens. The click only exits the Swatch pulldown. So I have to click AGAIN every time to select a tool. This too is both frustrating and annoying, slowing down workflow and adding hundreds of unneccesary clicks per week.
In CS6, I could exit the Swatches pulldown and select a Tool simultaneously with just one click.
How soon do you anticipate a fix to these problems?
Yep, same problem here on my windows machine at work.
de_fault, please send a complaint to Adobe otherwise they won't fix it:
Problem description: When switching from the Selection tool to the Text tool (by double-clicking in a text box) there is a 1-2 second delay before you can select text.
Steps to reproduce bug:
1. Make a text box and fill with text
2. Select the Selection tool (V)
3. Double-click in the text box so that you see a cursor
4. Immediately try to select text
Results: You have to wait 1-2 seconds before you can select text.
Expected results: There should not be a delay. There was no delay in previous versions.
Please fix this, I have 64 bit indesign. Running on 64bit windows 7 ultra: 32GB Ram, i7 ivy bridge, Nvidia G-force card. Why cant I just quickly triple click inside of a simple text box?!? Seriously!!!
I too have this issue. Please fix!!
Also, when dragging a simple text frame around in CC (2014), it is jumpy and takes a second for the box to catch up to my mouse. The UI or "animation" of it looks more "smoothed" and flowy than CS6 on my Mac, but I think this smoothness is making it lag in response time.
I should correct my question above: it's not just with text frames. Its with image frames and any other object that I drag around on the page. Very delayed and overly rendered, it seems.
Hey everyone, guess what?
Four years later and the issue hasn't been fixed (persists in ID CC 2017).
Think Adobe cares about fixing bugs or just taking our money with this BS cloud subscription.
I am still using CS6 because it's the only one that works.
They'll just put me in touch with someone overseas who reads a script and tells me it's a "known issue" and that they're "working on it."
I condemn this company in the strongest possible terms.
We have fixed the multiple-click issue with the latest CC 2018.0 release of InDesign.
Please let us know if you still the issue.
I don't see InDesign CC 2018 as available to download in the Creative Cloud App, just 2017.
I just installed InDesign CC 2018 and the problem is still there.
I just upgraded to Windows 10 and the latest version of InDesign (CC 2018) and the problem persists.
