1. Communicate like a reasonable adult. This is a site populated with your fellow users who are professionals.
2. What are your Mac's specifications? How old are your Macs? How much RAM? What operating system are you running? What do you know about your video card specs?
3. How did you accomplish your upgrade/install of InDesign CC? Did you upgrade the OS at the same time? Did you do any OS system cleaning and cultivation (like using DiskWarrior utilities)?
Hope this helps,

Adobe are aware of the issues. Unfortunately, testing on every system on the market is not possible. They can only do tests on what they have and then release it. There are many moving parts.
The FAQ on the first page of the forums has links to how to troubleshoot the buggy behaviour - and Adobe are working on a fix.
1: I'll go for the non-adult response in saying: Code like adult then! This is purely waste of everybody's time and money
2: Joking aside we have lot's of different machines:
- Mac Pros are between 2 and 5 year old.
- iMacs are between 1 year and 1 month old
- MBP are 2-3 years old
- MBPr are 1 one year old
RAM differ but in general the least amount of RAM is 8-16gb for most machines.
Running Snow Leopard on some older machines and ML on newer. All up to date.
Upgrade is through a global deal with Adobe from our Worldwide company HQ.
The problem persists on all Macs. Some of the newer ones a little bit better. However all run ID CC way slower than than ID CS5.5, which still makes this a terrible update close to unususable for us...
There can be only one recommendation:
NEVER use a software with a version number x.0.0 for production purposes …
Stick with InDesign CS5.5 or CS6 (if you find it valuable), though CS6 got only one round of bug fixing.
Steffan667: as a temporary workaround, try this: InDesign > Preferences > Display Performance> turn off Transparency display (I know, it sucks but at least it may solve some issues until Adobe comes with a fix).
Amen to that. We got too excited with the retina update. Would have been nice to be able to use the the retina version of InDesign on the MBPr though.
Guess we'll just have to stick with CS InDesign5.5 untill they decide to fix the issues.
Illustrator CC and Photoshop CC both seem to run just fine.
Thanks for the feedback and tips!
Communicate like a reasonable adult? What an irritating response to a very fair and valid post. Michael, you should not be aloud to communicate on this forum. You are dreadful ambassador for Adobe. Truly useless.
Steffan667 is correct. InDesign is a laggy mess. Almost unusable on the MacBook Pro Retina.
Although he holds a number of certifcations from Adobe, Michael, as he pointed out, is not connected in any official capacity to Adobe Systems, Inc. and neither speaks for them nor has a direct line to influence product development. That's also true for me, and almost everyone else you will encounter here. Adobe employees are badged as such.
Adults communicate calmly, don't rant, and they don't call each other names.
Sorry, but I have to agree with Michael. When you START your first posting with these phrases...
"don't give me that crap like"
"what the hell were you people thinking "
"What the fudge"
"don't screw over all your customers"
...you're really not asking reasonable adult questions, you're venting emotion for the sake of venting.
This is a user-to-user forum. You're not addressing the people at Adobe who make decisions. You're addressing some hard working volunteers who are InDesign users like you who are trying to help other people.
Do you have anything worthwhile to add to this community besides hurling
personal insults at people that have actually helped hundreds if not
thousands of other users?
Because I don't see any contribution anywhere from you at all.
