27" iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, OSX 10.9
Adobe InDesign CC 9.1
Suitcase Fusion 5 Version 16.0.5 (603)
Since installing Mavericks have had terrible issues using InDesign on my less than 3 month old iMac.
Font selection is painfully slow as shown in this video...
Sometimes when trying to change a fonts weight it won't even register the selection. As can be seen in the video I have the font "Interval" selected and am trying to change its weight. I cannot do that. I then select an alternative font (you will see how laggy the font menu is) and it then takes around 7 seconds to change to the new font once selected. I can then change back to Interval and select the desired weight.
I have turned off the font previews in preferences as I thought this might be what was causing these issues, but sadly not.
Not sure whether the issue is Mavericks, Adobe or Extensis.
We also have the same sorts of issues on another older Mac in our studio. Before Mavericks it was fine. Not sure if that is just coincidence.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Did you do a clean install of mavericks, or an in-place upgrade? ID does not work well with in-palce upgrades or migration and should be reinstalled after you change the OS.
Yes, it would have been installed in place. My boss did it while I was on holiday and have had no end of problems since it was upgraded to Mavericks.
So you think re-installing InDesign might do the trick. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks.
It won't hurt but it's no sure thing. I'm still on 10.8.5 and until I have
time to wipe the hard drive and do a clean install of Mavericks, that's
where I'm staying.
