Has anyone else having problems with the panels on the right hand side of the screen on InDesign CS6? They're extremely unresponsive when collapsed and if clicked cause the spinning rainbow beachball to appear.
I'm using a brand new retina Macbook Pro 2.3 ghz 8GB with mountain lion.
It seemed to fix itself after the last Firmware update for the retina pro but reverted back to slowing down again today.
Yes, I'm having this problem too. Except, on a 2010 Mac Pro. Best temporary fix I can find is to not collapse any panels you will need open. Annoying, still looking for a permanent solution as well, will let you know if I find anything.
No problems with InDesign CS6 on an iMac with Mountain Lion so far and I've been using it quite a lot. I've had such a good experience with ML, I'll probably install it on my primary machine, a MacBook Pro, in a week or two.
I have the same problem with panels in inDesign CS6, only after upgrading to Mountain Lion (worked fine in Lion). When the panels are not expanded, hovering over the panel options and opening them is very lagged and slow (making them completely unreasonable to work with). The only workaround I've found thus far is to leave them expanded, as chrismcobble noted -- which is okay when working on a large monitor but not so great when working on a 13" screen. Needs fix!
I'm using a brand new, upgraded-to-the-max Macbook Air (which is non-retina), 2.0 ghz with 8GB memory, running Mountain Lion.
This could be a bug, an interaction of running Mountain Lion and the new Macs (Air, MBP Retina) with CS6.
There was an earlier bug of crashing with the new Macs on CS6 with the fix here:
I have no such problems with ML and CS6 but I don't have one of the new Macs.
Any chance anyone wants to try to cross-check and isolate this problem more specifically? Curious what kind of setup chrismcobble has for example, since the problem interestingly also occured on a 2010 Mac Pro. I know leaving the panels open is a temporary workable fix, but I'd prefer to have a fully functioning application if possible.

Things to try:
* Restore InDesign preferences
* Restart with Shift key held down to disable third-party add-ons
* If you migrated your files from another Mac, you might have migrated something which caused the problem, so see if it happens in another Mac OS X user account
Yes, I'm having the same problem.
I've had some luck getting it to go away by turning off startup items, etc etc — the problem doesn't occur if I start up in Mac OS X Safe mode.
That's a sure sign that you have software installed which is conflicting with InDesign. Starting in Safe mode disables third-party software.
