I'm running into issues with how the Paragraph Palette is operating in the updated version of IDCC (2017) 126.96.36.199 build.
I think this is a bug and I hope I'm not the only one experiencing this.... please chime in if you are also experiencing this bug or have a solve.
When trying to edit measurements in the fields within the Paragraph palette, my text ends up getting edited and whatever I key in gets inserted into the text box:
E.g. selecting a line of text and editing the space after will result in inserting that measurement figure into my text box. It's not every time, but I can't figure out the pattern other than doing the same thing over and over again, trying to re-select in hope it will take and not edit text.
This is quite irritating and such a pain.
Go to Preferences > Advanced Type. Turn off the Type Contextual checkboxes at the bottom of that panel. Known bug.
Thanks! Will give it a shot.
