I have recently installed InDesign 2015 and the Font section menu isn't working. When I select some text on the page (form an old file) and pull down the font menu box to select a new font nothing happens i.e. the font does not change.
I have tried:
Restating Indesign 2015
Reinstalling Indesign 2015
Signing out and in of creative cloud
Switching TypeKit fonts on and off (even though the same issue is with system fonts too)
Maybe Ill have to find a way of going back to ID2014
Sorry to see you facing issues with the latest version of InDesign.
This issue is seen with the Font Menu mode being "Search First Word Only". Please use the mode "Search Entire Font Name" as a workaround till we fix this issue.
To change the mode click on the Search (magnifier) icon on the Font Menus Edit Box and chose "Search Entire Font Name" from the Drop down.
We deeply regret the inconvenience caused.
thank you for your reply. This fixed the issue for me as I was facing the same problem as power dust 72.
