InDesign 14.0.3 is now live and publicly available!
InDesign 188.8.131.523 update has gone live today and is available publicly. Please update your installations with the latest builds that should be showing up in your Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop app.
The complete list of issues fixed in this release can be found at: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/fixed-issues.html
The 14.0.3 update fixes the problem introduced by the previous InDesign update, 14.0.2, where bringing up IDImposer’s “Registration” or “About” dialog caused Mac InDesign to become ‘unresponsive’. See the previous post .
This problem with 14.0.2 update affected only InDesign for the Mac, but 14.0.3 fixes many other InDesign issues, on both Mac and Windows. So my recommendation is for all users of InDesign 2019 (14.0) to update to 14.0.3.
And as long as you’re updating your InDesign, why not update your IDImposer, too?
Update: InDesign 14.0.3 released
InDesign 14.0.3 fixes this problem (and many others). 30 August 2019.
There is an acknowledged bug in the latest (as of May 2019) update to Mac InDesign CC, 14.0.2. You are most likely to run into it if you are trying to register your License Key, using the Register button in IDImposer. The registration dialog will display, but then both IDImposer and InDesign will lock up when you attempt to dismiss the Registration dialog, requiring you kill InDesign (Command-Option-Esc).
This bug affects many scripts, not just IDImposer, and there is, unfortunately, nothing that I can do to IDImposer to work around the problem.
The only known solution is to back out of the 14.0.2 update, and run 14.0.1, or earlier release of InDesign CC, or InDesign CS6. Hopefully a newer release of InDesign will also include a fix for the problem.

Did you know that you can do 4-up, 6-up, 8-up, and more-up sheet layouts with IDImposer? See the newly expanded Chapter 11: Page Sequences for more information. Note especially the new PageSequences Catalog, displaying all of the currently defined layouts.
After wrestling with WordPress 5, staging sites, and MAMP for the past week or so, this morning I finally went ‘Live’ with a major Spring cleaning of InDesignTools.com!
I invite you to check out the new website design, and download the latest IDImposer. And be sure to pass along your suggestions for future development!
