This has only happened since I installed on a newer Mac Mini, most times when I go to edit text within a frame, it will disappear while I'm typing no matter the zoom level. The only way to make it re-appear is to zoom in or out.

I've got Display Performance Settings to High, Greek below 7pt & the GPU Performance is on, no Animated zoom.

InDesign is 17.4.1 (I have newer, but stick with this mostly because our SmartStream License is tired to it)
Mac is a Mini M1 running OS 13.4.1

I found this, do you have a character style with a no break?


don't think this is your problem, your text reappears
Nothing to see here!


try turning off the GPU Performance

"There's been a lot of research recently on how hard it is to dislodge an impression once it's been implanted in someone's mind. (This is why political attack ads don't have to be true to be effective. The other side can point out their inaccuracies, but the voter's mind privileges the memory of the original accusation, which was juicier than any counterargument ever could be.)"

I tried both ways. The default was actually GPU Performance off.
