What happens if you invoke the Recompose All Stories command? Does it come back?
- Mac: Cmd+Opt+/
- Wind: Ctrl+Alt+/
I'm having the same problem. For me, I can make it come back by scrolling so the page goes out of my view, then scroll back again.
I'm not sure if this will help, I haven't tried it yet..
Troubleshoot fonts in Adobe applications | Mac OS X
I have tried with few files at my and I am not able to reproduce the issue at my end.
Can you please verify on which version of InDesign are you facing this issue?
Also, it would be really helpful for investigation if you can share a sample document with which I can reproduce the issue.
you can drop the file to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Try to uncheck the GPU-performance under Preferences > GPU Performance. Solved the problem for me.
Its always been unchecked, thanks anyway
I will try to produce a document next time it happens. I use the latest version in CC.
You don't have text wrap turned on by default, by accident, do you? Have you checked to see if text wrap is turned on in some graphics frame or text frame that is nearby your textframe where the text is disappearing?
Nope. I've been using Indesign for like 7 years and its something that's just started a few months back. I'm wondering if its my MacBook Pro. I'd be interested in know what system ruthyduncan is using. But if it was that, I would suspect that other programs/apps would be doing the same.
I haven't used my desktop for a few years, so can't compare it with that, not yet anyway
I wonder if some View setting got changed...like the View > Colors options. I generally have it off, but I've turned it on before when I have strange redraw issues. Not sure it would fix your issue. I know my text disappears with I invoke the zoom shortcut...always gives me a mini heart attack, then I find it's there when it's done zooming!
