InDesign Type Contextual Controls may cause InDesign to hang or quit unexpectedly


Some customers have reported system lockups that are rleated to the InDesign 2017 (and later) feature called "Type Contextual Controls".  You will know this feature is enabled if you see a little 'o' icon that appears briefly next to the cursor while you are editing.

If you are not using this feature, we recommend that you turn it off. Here is how to turn off this feature:

1) Open InDesign Preferences

2) Select the "Advanced Type" section

3) Un-check both of the following checkbox items:

     Show for Character Alternates, Fractions, Ordinals, and Ligatures

     Show Adornment on Text Selection/Text Frame for more Type controls

4) Save your changes
