After upgrading to ID CS6, why is it so slow to save?

Tags: #cs6 #slow_save

Hello. Our team just upgraded to CS6 from CS5. Our ID files are 2 page catalog spreads with multiple images placed. ID files and images reside on Mac Xserve via Gigabit. Client machines are Macs running OS X 10.7 and 10.8.


When saving these spreads in CS6, the performance is very slow. With CS5 there was virtually no lag to save. Taking up to a minute to save. Client macs have 4GB to 8GB RAM. Preflight is turned off. We’ve tried updating links, etc. but nothing we’ve tried seems to make things any faster.


Thanks, in advance, for any thoughts you all might have!

    I don't know off-hand, but you should narrow the problem.

    Confirm if you have the same problem saving to local disk, for instance.

     

    Next, you can try using the Sample Process functionality in Activity Monitor to try to see what is different.  You can get finer control with the "sample" command from Terminal.app (See "man sample" for usage details).

     

    Let us know how it goes!

    Well, the interesting thing is the differences between them.

    Try getting a sample that covers the problematic saving, and one that covers the regular saving, and upload them to http://pastebin.com/ and post links here, and I'll take a look.

    No, no! It must be DURING the Save operation.

    It must capture what InDesign is doing WHILE IT DOES IT.

    That means you have to start the Sample and then tell InDesign to Save

    in rapid succession.

    This may be tricky to accomplish.

    Also, make sure that CS6 is fully patched to the latest update - check Help>Check for Updates.
