    Indesign CC9.2.2 unusable on Macbook Pro Retina


      Hi there I was wondering if any people happen to get extremely poor usage with Indesign on Macbook Pro Retina.

      I have the 2011 version with 2,6Ghz Intel Core i7 with 8GB ram.


      I can use Photoshop, Illustrator and even After Effects simultaneously without any hiccups or slowdowns. But using Indesign without any other programs on is useless.

      After trying some suggestions like putting the settings to Typical display, closing Font Explorer, no rulers etc.. I still can't use the program as it should.


      Problems start when I work in documents with 10 pages with images, text and some Illustrator/Photoshop links in them.

      Deleting an object takes 42 seconds and at first it looks like you haven't pressed a single button. Takes 10 seconds before the rainbow wheel appears.

      Moving objects takes 31 seconds

      Pasting an object from another page takes 1 minute and 11 seconds.


      I have seen many people experiencing the problem but haven't seen an solution yet. Does anyone know about a time frame when Adobe will fix the bugs with Retina screens?

      Or any other tips for a solution.


      Thanks in advance,
