Flash CS6 not responding every few seconds.

I've been working on a few animation projects for the past few days, and Flash CS6 always tends to show the spinning blue wheel and white screen for like 10 seconds. This is very irritating. I would probably be done with the project by now if it weren't for this bug.



Windows 7 64-bit

Nvidia GeForce GT 540m

8gb ram

Intel Core i7


Thanks in advance.

    Try using a PC.

    Not sure if I am stating the obvious, but can you close all processes that you are not using and then retry?

    I'm also having this problem. Every now and then (probably with a 5-10 min interval) Flash CS6 freezes for 10 or more seconds. The larger the Flash-file, the longer it freezes. I've turned off the auto-recovery mode, I'm not working on a file that's in a network folder (like Dropbox, since I heard somebody had trouble with this), and I've quit all programs. Still freezes. I've also got all the latest updates.


    It's very annoying, and I think I would've been able to work a lot more if this weren't happening all the time. Perhaps I'll try to import all of the content into a new file?


    Any know solutions?


    I'm on a late 2009 iMac:

    2,8 GHz Intel Core i7

    Oh, I found out what was causing the problem. In addition to the auto-recovery option in 'preferences', there's an auto-save feature that's on by default and set to auto-save every 10 minutes. This explains why it freezes for a longer period of time each time. It's (remotely) located within Modify -> Document (Cmd + J on a Mac, probably CTRL + J on Windows).


    Just remember to save often if you uncheck both of these features
