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.
