Which version of InDesign and OS?
Try trashing your InDesign preferences.
For me, most recent ID and Mac - Yosemite. Prefs dumped, uninstall, reinstall. Defrag. Turn all fonts off in Font Book. Signed out and back in of CC app.
Did you ever find a solution? I'm having the same issue.
Which version of InDesign (don't state "the last one" state the exact version and your OS).
Have you tried trashing your InDesign preferences?
Close and relaunch InDesign, and IMMEDIATELY hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows) or Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift (Mac), and respond in the affirmative to the dialog asking if you really want to replace the preferences. you must be extremely fast on the keyboard (if you don’t see the confirmation prompt, you were too slow)
You may have to do it a couple of times before you get the hang of it!
Not really. Some people said it was a memory issue and I am trying to transition over to an SSD with more memory but I can still only max out at 8GB.
Other people said that they had the full 16GB and still had slow downs so no idea.
I had the Adobe Tech AND the Apple Tech and then ANOTHER Adobe Tech try all of these things, Derek. None of it sped things up to 1.5 year ago status. I know I have an older computer and I can't put a ton of RAM into it but it was working fine until CC ID 2015.
