    Wonky Panel Behavior

    peterpica Level 1

      Running CS6 on iMac w/32g ram, El Capitan 10.11.1


      InDesign's panel display seems to have a lengthy lag between when I click on one and it opens up.


      I notice also that InD takes exorbitantly long to boot and seems to 'hang' when activating the panels in the startup screen.


      I dumped prefs with no effect. Don't have panel display lag issues with PS nor with Ily.

          CS6 has lots of compatibility issues on El Capitan, and unless someone else has found a solution to this particular problem you get to be the pioneer -- Adobe's position is this combination of app/OS is not supported.

            As the other Peter has already noted, your best bet here is roll back to be Yosemite. Spend a few minutes reading through the rest of the El Capitan posts and you'll find more problems than I can remember. Combined with the EOL status of CS6 and IMO you're wasting your time trying to get it working.

              Thanks Peter… I always liked Arrow shirts until the last few years when age started to shorten my patience with just about everything… especially Adobe v Apple issues.

                Thanks Bob… I was about to do that, but then remember the angst with reinstalling all other apps… when I ‘downgraded’ to EC.


                WHATA PIA!


                May just bite the bullet, at least for a few weeks. I’d been hollering at other developers for incompatibility issues with EC, but now all out there seem to be pointing the schtick at Apple. Too bad… I think Apple’s too busy developing other products and making a bundle whilst doing so while ignoring the publishing community. Sure wish Steve was still around.

                  Lo again Bob. Thought I'd letcha know... was mucking around more with InD & El Capitan... upgrading back to Yosemite too annoying what with app & plufin reinstalls... I found that by detaching the panels from each other, the performance issues disappeared! FYI only.
