Legacy files? Export to .idml and reopen than save those as new .indd files.
Peter are you having the same issues?
No, I run Windows, so I'm just re-offering the best advice we've seen so far for this issue.
Can you tell us something about your computer's configuration?
There were major changes in the virtual memory scheme of MacOS 10.9 that have manifested themselves as general poor performance with symptoms of unexpectedly high CPU usage and disk operations.
How much real memory do you have installed on your system. Once you get to 8GB, you should be OK. Anything less, especially 2 to 4GB can be problematic.
It should eat this stuff for breakfast:
Processor 2,5 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000
Software OS X 10.9.4 (13E28)
This is why im so confused. All of last week it was fine. I updated Mavericks about 3 days ago and it all went down hill from there.
Wow, that hardware configuration should be no problem at all. Is the problem with all InDesign documents or just some with particular formatting peculiarities?
I haven't (yet) seen the symptoms you are reporting.
PS: Sorry for delay in responding. Out for the holidays!
No worries... hope you had a good time.
Even more strange is the inconsistency in its performance over various documents.
- New docs seems to be ok. (for a time)
- Old docs after opening and closing down seem to work for a while then when reopened days later are a killa to work with.
Ive tried to break a document by embedding loads of massive images in it as well as linking loads of images to see if either have an effect. Non that I can see. It's just too inconsistent to begin to know where to start.
Document redraw seems to the be the main issue over all. I'm at the stage of getting a copy of CS5...!!!
Thanks for the reply.
