im not sure if my file is just too big but everything is extremely slow
im using a mac desktop and it has the latest updates on indesighn
my project involves making a picture out of words (lots of type)
i got half way through my project and it slowly became slower and slower, now it takes my 30 seconds for a word to load after i move it
i have currently selected all my words and am making them into shapes by clicking "create outlines" but it has been loading for over 15 minutes
i need to Finnish my project and I'm running out of time
Try a Save As.
Try saving as an IDML file and then reopening
Try trashing your InDesign preferences.
Ensure you have back-up versions!
