How to fix a SERIOUS lag issue for Acrobat and Reader on a Macbook Pro for forms? Please.

Dec 6, 2011 8:33 PM

Both adobe reader 9 and 10 as well as Acrobat 10 are INSANELY slow on my brand new Macbook Pro when I try and fill out forms.

 

It laggs like crazy. I cant even believe how slow it is.

 

I have 2 gigs of ram available so thats not the problem.

 

I am also running the latest version on lion 10.7.2 i think

 

I cant find information on this anywhere and I am desperate. I was forced to download parrarels and use the windows reader and acrobat because this is just crazy

 

Someone please help

    Hi,

     

    is the lag issue occurs with only one form*, some forms* or all forms ?

     

    If * : are they simple forms (one page, a few fields) or complex forms (many pages, many fields with many calculations) ?

    Did you try to run Reader and/or Acrobat in 32 bits mode ?

    (Right-clic the app icon : Show info : then tick the 32 bits checkbox)

    You should ask Adobe, may be there is a conflict with another software…

    The solution to my problem with lagging Reader and Acrobat were solved by following the above link. The only difference was I was not able to exclude RightZoom app from Adobe, so instead of allow a/exlcude this one. I excluded all/only allow these. If you have RIghtZoom app installed on you MAC (regardless of the version of OS you're using) this fix work. After 9 months of fustrations, problem solved.
