Is there any compatibility problems with indesign cs 5 and windows 8? Its very choppy on my computer. Its a windows 8 laptop with 32 gb of ram and 2 tb disk space. It shouldn't be a problem with lack of resources. I was wondering if there is anything i can to to make it less choppy. Also the scroll bars on the side and bottom won't scroll I need to use the space bar which is fine but can be annoying at times. Sometimes the side menu boxes wouldn't work correctly sometimes they will. I tried to reinstall the program and it didn't change anything. I also tried using the windows troubleshooting where you can tell the computer to use old settings for older programs. Once in a while it'll also crash. Indesign works great on my windows 7 desktop. I didn't know if there was a preset or something that might help resolve the issues. I can use the program but I have to fight with it so much sometimes its not worth using on the laptop. thanks
Start by setting Live Screen Drawing to Delayed in the prefs. You can also try running in a compatibility mode.
I didn't even try to install CS5 on Win 8. The only thing I have on my desktop and laptop is CS6.
I did read someone having problems with scrollbars but that was on a Surface Pro tablet.
