Not nearly enough to go on.
What operating system? What are the hardware specs for the computer?
If there are cross refs across docs, open them all whether updating them specifically or not. And are there links? They might be referring to a location not available.
Sorry, again I am not very computer literate, I would have to ask the tech guy when I return to work tomorrow...
When running a Document file created in Indesign and been created on my computer, everything works fine. Thats why I am coming to the conclusion it is something to do with a setting on Indesign rather than the computer itself?
Thank you for your reply.
Thank you for your reply ....
There are links, with no errors. I have all the appropriate files with all the images in the right places.
I was originally opening all the files to edit them, because there was editing to do with the cross references, but again this makes no difference to the speed of the editing.
.... I probably should have mentioned that this problem has not always occurred, the editing of the files has gradually got slower and slower to the point where it is now effecting the amount of work I get done in a day ect;
Do a Save As on each of the files to clear out old change data. If there are cross-document cross-references ID will constantly open the files and close them again as you work unless you keep all files in the book open.
I have done this.
I have deleted all the files I had started working on leaving me with the core Indesign IDML Files, saved each individually IDML into an Indesign CS6 file..... Now all that worked perfectly fine, I was able to open close and edit the files (whilst they were all open) very easily and without much delay.
I have then created a booked saved it into the same folder as the converted Indesign Cs6 files and one by one added them into the book saving the book after each addition. Again all of this worked well and had no delay.
I have closed the book, re-opened the book along with all the indivudual sections for editing .... && this is where it freezes and takes a ridiculous amount of time to even type or delete. One thing that puzzles me is that scrolling up and down the pages seems to be working fine and at a normal speed.
I'm stumped. I don't know why it should work until you close and re-open, but I suspect it's either a plugin or other software conflict.
Since my earlier reply, I have now gone back to the book, opened the book and all the sections .... all is working great !! I think I may have slightly corrupted the files whilst I have been opening the sections individually within the book to edit them ?? Great advice Thank you !!!
