Auto activation InDesign CC2014


Can anybody tell me how to get rid of this strange bug?


It steals the focus, and then returns it. It causes all sorts of problems. Sometimes it bugs a lot/many times in short time, sometimes less. Removing the Suitcase auto-activation solves it. I kinda like the auto-activation.

The bug is only in InDesign. This started after I updated all software to current latest version:

OSX Mavericks 10.9.4
Adobe Creative Cloud 2014
InDesign Build
Suitcase Fusion 5 16.2.4 (is currently the newest version available.)



I also contacted Extensis technical support. No word yet.
Have anyone heard something?


Same problem here. Drove me crazy when I wanted for example to resize a text frame and because of the ‘focusing’ it would deselect the frame.

Removed auto-activation indeed and that solved it, but I want it back and working…


Me to. Sent request to the support team. No reply until now. Its been about a week. :confused:
Lets hope the Extensis guys figures a way.

(I regret the decision to be “all updated”.)
