Hi, Computer has Lion 10.7.5 and Indesign is CS6. Whether I'm working on desktop or server I have Indesign CS6 hang up and spin many times a day. I have heard fonts or preferences and have shut both of these items down to try without them. I was wondering if it could be a 32bit vs 64bit issue, would one work better than the other with Lion. Sometimes it seems to work a bit after a double restart but could be coincidence. Ive read a few bugs on CS6.
There is no 64 bit version of CS6, so you can stop worrying about that. have you installed the bug-fix patches?
You cannot shut down the prefs, but if they are corrupt you can replace them. See Replace Your Preferences
Also try turning off Live Preflight and page thumbnails in the Pages panel.
Thanks appreciate it
