did you export the document to PDF to see, if the not updating shading is "only" a not updating screen redraw error?
That would be a bug as well, but it could mean that you "only" need a redraw of the screen for the whole document.
Maybe by closing and opening the document.
I did the same by pressing (W) in my keyboard but still indesign hides the shading. The only way it show is disable and enable the shading from style sheet.
Is abobe will fix this in its next update?
Hm, pressing W might not enough to force a redraw.
So I'm asking again: Did you export to PDF and see the shortened shading in Adobe Reader?
I don't know, if the developers will fix it in the next update.
First they have to know about this. So I suggest you'll send a bug report:
1. Close and reopen the document is working fine.
2. Yes, I am seeing the same issue in exported PDF when viewing in AdobeReader.
3. I will write this in Wisshform
Thanks for your kind help!
I just tested this with InDesign CC 2015.3 on Mac OSX 10.10.3 (all German versions).
1. I can confirm the redraw error with paragraph shading
2. I cannot confirm that this redraw error is making it to an exported PDF
I used PDF/X-4 as export preset.
How to recreate this redraw error:
1. Have a paragraph formatted with paragraph shading.
2. Draw a rectangle on the page.
3. Anchor the rectangle to the first insertion point of the formatted paragraph.
Still the paragraph shading is ok.
4. Place an image to the empty anchored rectangle
=> The shading is not showing right.
The same will happen, if the shading is showing ok—you may saved, closed and opened the document—and relinked the image in the anchored object.
What can be done to recreate the right drawing of the paragraph shading?
Just change the width or the height of the text frame a bit and change it back to its original size.
Redraw is now enforced.
Here one screenshot from my German InDesign:
Here the exported PDF seen from Acrobat DC where the shading looks alright:
Hope, that helps.
2. Yes, I am seeing the same issue in exported PDF when viewing in AdobeReader. …
What export preset did you use for PDF Export?
I just reported this issue as a bug.
Still I am not absolutely sure, if that particular problem travels over to exported PDFs.
Maybe another bug on the Windows version of InDesign?
I cannot test this. I'm on Mac OSX 10.10.3 with InDesign CC 2015.3.
Custom preset I am using and it is with Acrobat 8/9 compatibility.
And thanks for sent this to Adobe.
Can you share the joboptions file?
I tested on a bit. And yes, I can confirm the truncated shading in several export formats.
This is definitely a serious bug! Not just a glitch in screen redrawing…

Print to PostScript => distill to PDF
I did not test PDF (Print) with other than the pre-installed joboptions yet.
These pre-installed settings with names in [brackets] seem not affected as my preliminary tests are showing.
So you should be on the safe side when using export to PDF/X-1a and PDF/X-4.
Because of this I asked for a joboptions file to recreate your export result.
Thanks a lot and I will go with the default settings come with indesign itself.
Check the results carefully.
Take enough time to look at the PDF pages in Acrobat Pro or Acrobat DC with "Simulate Overprint" on. Issues like that cannot be caught by PDF Preflight.
( And click on and off the K plate with Separation View on to see, if some pure black objects turned to CMY+K for every page. )*
*My last comment in brackets has nothing to do with this issue discovered here; it's simple best practice, I think.
