Version of InDesign? What operating system? What changed in your system?
Indesign CC 18.104.22.168/ MACOS Sierra/ Mac Pro mid 2010 / 2 x 2.66 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon/32 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
From a fresh start (indesign re-intalled) I can start a new doc no problem. But when I access pre-saved docs it slows right down to about 30sec per action – unusable. I store my files on dropbox and have downloaded test files direct onto my mac but the same thing happens. I have a MacBook pro too, which I use when out of the office – accessing the same files with no problem.
Its driving me crazy!!
Also – no noticeable change in the system, and it slowed right down before installing Sierra.
Was having a very similar problem.
Allocating InDesign more RAM? (PC)
I have reverted back to the previous version of InDesign and am now having a much better experience.
What version is your macbook on?
Its the samosa the desktop. I have a Creative cloud account ichi automatically updates to each device. I was wondering of it was some kind of auto-recovery glitch.
Tried to load previous version but not available as an option in the CC app.
Nothing is working for me. Just reinstalled and the same thing is happening. Maybe one clue is that when it finally opens on the start screen, the Recents list is from around 6 months ago, with nothing showing more recent than than. And during un-install I selected to delete all preferences. Just weird!
