I recommend you work on the local hard drive, and that includes all linked graphic files on the local hard drive, too.
but thats not professional, its not like all the users will work on their hdd
i need a real solution because this will slow the work flow
If there's no big difference moving files to the desktop then you have bigger issues somewhere.
You tell us ID is up to date and that you've tried all solutions but that tells us nothing.
What version EXACTLY is CS6 patched to? What EXACTLY have you tried?
BTW, CS6 is a 32 bit application and is not going to be able to take advantage of extra RAM packed into those machines.
One other question...were those Yosemite installs done as clean installs or upgrades? Upgrades are nothing but a crap shoot and IMO should never be done on a production machine.
OK to explain it
All production uses InDesign CS6 on Mac Pro Early 2013 and Mac Pro Late 2008
All the files saved on the Windows Server 2012R since this is a work and all see the files been working (we can work on the hdd only server)
The file size vary from 50-90MB
All Machines updated to latest OS X 10.10.2 and Adobe update all to latest and i dont know the version
I enabled SMBv1,v2,v3 on windows server or one by one
I disabled SMBv2,v3 on Mac
I used CIFS, SMB and AFP (AFP using Acronis ExtremeZ-IP installed on server)
All macs has been formatted to the OS X 10.10.2 the one from appstore which is made as bootable on USB
THATS ALL AND NOT A SINGLE PERFORMANCE IMPROVMENT
You didn’t answer the question about the Yosemite installs.
Oh…and if you don’t know the build number you can’t be sure it’s the latest. CMD+Click About InDesign to get the build number.
As i said i made bootable usb useing the os x 10.10.2 from the appstore and formated the mac freash without restore or migration
InDesign cs6 v8.0.2 latest
Another question is it InDesign CS6 on the mac x86 not x64 ? your sure?

CS6 is 32 bit. Yes…I’m dead sure of that.
Things to try:
1. Be sure screen redraw is set to delayed.
2. Turn off page thumbnails in the pages panel
3. Set previews to typical
I would also download and install the CC2014 trial to test that out. If it’s also dead slow you have a system problem somewhere. If it’s fast, at least you have an upgrade path.
OK InDesign CS6 is definitely x86 (THAT SUCKS)
And i tried all above still slow, once i open files localy not a single problem, if they work on the files on the server its slow, i guess SMB really f***ed up the work flow
is there any solution regards this?
Talk to your network people. This shouldn’t be that big a slowdown.
Is everything gigabit?
I'm the network guy
Besides if you think this problem happens to us only just google "SMB Slow Mac", you will find tons of people suffer this problem and its amazing apple they dont care whats happening
yes everything is gigabyte all cat6, Windows 7,8 to Server 2012R super fast
Also i read about FreeBSD that can be installed on the server and bring a boost speed
I hope i get the support regards this issue
If you come up with a working solution, I hope you will tell us about it in this thread!
Did you try the trial of CC2014?
Any support you get here is going to be from volunteers. If you want direct support from Adobe you’re going to have to contact them and there will be a cost associated it with it.
Not yet tomorrow i will
Besides the issue is 100% from network, since the integration of SMB on OS X 10.9 and 10.10 the transfer sucks in 10.8 the transfer is 300Mb both read write DAMN
Also using test application and simple copy past from Mac to Windows Server and vice versa its slow
Just wanted to check in with this to see if anybody has any kind of reasonable workaround, yet. I know Adobe is "working on it," but it's been several years at least, so I'm starting to wonder if it's really much of a priority for them. Hamood_d10, are you still dealing with this?
Adobe is working on NOTHING having to do with CS6. It is EOL and will never see another update.
If you're asking if it will be bug free, the answer is no. If you're asking if the software receives regular updates, the answer is yes.
Just a thought, do you use a font manager?
Do you have a lot of fonts open? Having thousands of fonts open will slow you to a crawl. Also, font conflicts are a nightmare (TT vs PS vs OT vs .dfont). Some "Free" fonts available on the web can also cause problems.
I see a lot of people putting all their fonts in the User Font folder and/or using Font Book, not realizing that they should not have "too many" fonts active at once.
I use Extensis Suitcase to handle these issues. Flags damaged or problems fonts, resolves duplicate/alternate format font conflicts and allows auto activation/deactivation. There are other brands out there, but this one is my favorite.
Also, I do agree that working over SMB is a nightmare (post Mountain Lion when they moved away from SMBX) and I know that using AFP using Acronis helps a lot.
