Dynamic spell and/or preflight activated? Those two are permanent background tasks that are initiated if anything changes. Switching focus to ID and pasting something is a change.
So unless you switch of both, this is considered as normal.
dynamic spelling is not activated, but preflight is. so you're saying, the long lag time is normal? i mean i'm talking about several seconds, nearly a minute at times.
You initially wrote "several seconds". That'd be normal, but not a minute. Something else that creates lags: too many linked text frames with too much text inside.
Next is, you are running Yosemite. Many users seem to have problems with that in connection to Adobe's tools. Apple does not care about third party software to run correctly when releasing a new OS version so next time you might probably think first before
updating so quickly.

to creative cloud? totally agree
...also to Yosemite. An OS newer than the software you run on it is always a risk. Apple can only check their own software for compatibility and if they find something bad, they need to release a new software version. Adobe is now probably forced to bring an update of their tools just for Yosemite users, actually only because Apple made a new OS version so quickly after the previous one. This is work which was not planned and only costs time and money. If you have set up your system to run fine, then do not touch it. A computer you do your daily work on is not a fun device where you always have to have the newest version of everything, just to be cool and hip. Perhaps it's better to have two computers. One to play around with and carelessly install OS updates on, and one to work with.
i hear you. i just bought my new mac pro. my last mac was 8 years old and i used to only update my adobe software every couple of years, allowing the bugs to be worked out. i don't jump on the always-need-the-newest bandwagon.
however, i am now being forced into that very model by both companies:
having to join the cable company of software, creative cloud, or choose to never upgrade my 3 apps again, and by being subjected to apple's hardware/software updates, which can affect my workflow.
for me, apple and adobe have managed to work together fine for the past 20 years: bugs being worked out through updates/forums.
the blame game has been going on for as long as i've used these products. it doesn't really add to the conversation at this point.
...and they will continue to do so, but you need to be patient and wait for updates. I never used Macs, but since Mavericks and Yosemite and how they all were called are no bugfixes, but complete new OS's, this has changed. And the period of time between two versions has become shorter. Bugs are still being worked out, but it has become harder for third party to keep track with Apple updating and changing (!!!) the OS so often.
I have the same problems. I'm on Windows 7 Professional and when I'm using InDesign and I click out of it -- for anything, even on the date/time -- it takes 20-some seconds for the screen to become live again. I can move the cursor, or click out of InDesign again and proceed normally.
So, Apple's not at fault and I have no idea about dynamic preflight and spelling. Any other ideas, folks?
i think when more people start using creative cloud, we will probably have a solution.
