    Adobe not listening! 2.5 years of complaints and no bug fix! Delay when switching from Selection tool (V) to Type tool (T) in CC

    Didi_Hirsch Level 1

      Every version of InDesign CC so far has had this bug:


      When switching from the Selection tool (V) 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 inside 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 the Creative Suite versions (CS1-CS6).


      Using Windows 7

      16 GB RAM, Intel i7 3.4 GHz processor.


      I had the Adobe support representative test this on their system and they were able to confirm it.




      I first became aware of this issue in early 2014. Adobe said that it was a known issue and that they were "working on a solution."


      So, I checked in with every new "update" and the issue had not been resolved. Every time I talk to a representative, they say they are "working on it."


      Adobe is the industry-leading software manufacturer, yet their engineers cannot fix a simple bug and make the software run like it already had for decades?


      After 2 and a half years of listening to "we are working on it," I officially do not believe that they are working on it. Their reputation has been severely damaged in my opinion and I do not like the direction the company is headed in.
