@Daan – I do not much with cross references, but several users here and in other forums report performance issues when working with cross references.
There is a 3rd party solution by DTP Tools:
You could test a trial version.
(And report back here how fast it is :-) )
Thanks, it is fast again!
Very weird how Adobe is not fixing this.. Am a bit worried about the 99 euros I have to pay after the trail period...
If you do a lot of cross references, I think it's worth the 99 € …
For people using InDesign CC I cannot see a version at DTP Tools. Don't know if its in the works…
Once I had to work with a document with a lot of xRefs (about 20,000). It was incredibly slow until I disabled Preflight.
Preflight is disabled...
But it is getting slower day by day..
Using the cross references pro plugin, and it worked great in the past, but now not any more..
Also cutting up the document so currently only max 8 pages are linked with text threading.
How can this anoying problem be solved?
Did you copy-paste text with xrefs form another document? I remember when I did this, InDesign was trying to restore xrefs to the doc which they were copied from and the process was very slow.
Not sure anymore, tried many different things to get it back to speed again.
Most of the references are made in this document, and were done whilst importing cross references from indesign to Cross Ref pro plugin.
How do i check if indesign is trying to restore the old ones?
