    Improve Indesign performance with a huge number of links?


      Hi all,


      I am working on a poster infographic with a huge number of links, specifically around 4500. I am looking to use indesign over illustrator for the object styles (vs graphic styles in illustrator) and for the interactive capacity.


      The issue I am having is indesign's performance with this many links. My computer is not maxed out on resources when indesign is going full power, but indesign is still very slow.


      So far, here are the things I have tried:


      • Display performance to fast
      • Switching from link AI files to SVGs
      • Turning off preflight
      • Turning off live-draw
      • Turning off save preview


      Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to speed up indesign! See below system specs



      Lenovo w520

      8GB DDR3 @1333mhz

      nVidia 2000M, 2GB GDDR

      Intel Core i7 2760QM @ 2.4GHz

      240GB Samsung 840 SSD

      Adobe CS6

      Windows 8


      The only other thing I can think to try is to break up the poster into multiple pages/docs and then combine it later, but this is not ideal. Thank you all for your time.
