          There are several other threads on this already. Please read through them.

          Adobe is aware of issues and is working on them.

            Take you pick.

             

            Seriously I would revert back to CS6, as that is what most of us have had to do.

                With over a million subscribers, yeah, I think it's safe to say the majority

                are not having issues. That doesn't minimize them for those that are but

                I've yet to see YOU offer anything other than troll-like comments.

                    700,000 of those were subscribers to CS6 and not many of them have be able to use CC. Get real and quit living in your fantasy land.

                      Tell me, Was, how do you get this information? Have you been out doing surveys? I just taught InDesign at a San Francisco conference and a great many of the users were using InDesign CC successfully.

                        Folks,

                         

                        I will repeat my response on behalf of Adobe from another thread:

                         

                        Adobe Engineering is painfully aware of the current performance issues with InDesign 9.

                         

                         

                        There will be an update in the relatively near future that will include a good number of fixes specifically to address performance problems in multiple areas, problems that unfortunately were the result of the massive code changes both for migrating to MacOS X's Cocoa framework as well as to 64-bit.

                         

                        There are definitely issues, but not all users are encountering them. That doesn't mean that there is something virtuous about users who don't encounter the performance issues or evil about those who do encounter those issues. There are a number of variables including platform, the formatting of the document being edited, the actual content already in the document, etc. There are well over a dozen separate scenarios that have already been identified and fixed as well as others being fully investigated for fixes. Hopefully all the fixes will be integrated and fully tested in time to come down chimneys.
