This question has been up for a couple of hours and viewed by almost 50 people, but no replies... does this mean I should it take up with Adobe support?
I have searched the forum listings and other websites and not found any discussion around the issue, so this must be a unique to me?
The reason you're probably not getting responses is (1) Alternate Layouts is a new CS6 feature which eliminates a lot of people; (2) Most CS6 users haven't used the feature; (3) Those of us who have tried the feature have worked on small test files.
Welcome to the frontier, Mr. Pioneer.
Steve, thanks for your reply. I was beginning to think nobody liked me!
I keep trying things but nothing seems to help. This issue is the same on my co-workers Windows 7 machine.
So the search for an answer continues.
Just as a test, maybe you could try this:
Surprisingly what solved the problem was View > Extras > Show Text Threads. The wierd thing was that after noticing editing speeds were back to normal, they remained speedy after Hide Text Threads.
Test this idea and see if it makes any difference on your situation?
Well, much to my surprise, your tip did help quite a lot, but not quite the way expected.
Contrary to your hint, it is when they are not displayed performance is faster, and hiding Frame Edges also helps, and now the edit speed is back up to near normal, certainly acceptable.
But when the Text Treads and Frame Edges are re-enabled, the problem returns (back to SLOW).
So, many thanks... this is a great workaround and helps a LOT.
