We are running an html extension on InDesign CC 2015 on mac.
I have a selfsigned extension containing of four palettes. When the user groups the palettes together and then closes them and open them again, InDesign freezes up for about 90 seconds. Then everything starts working again. If I put the machine in debug mode, by setting PlayerDebugMode = 1 i the com.adobe.CSXS.6.plist file the problem goes away.
My plugin is a number of angular applications. Its 63 Mb and contains around 1800 files ( java script files mostly).
Is it the verification of the signed plugin that makes InDesign freeze up?
Yes you are correct the load time increases with the number of files in your extension. Seems logical though as the signature verification module has to scan through all the files and verify the signature, in debug builds since there is no verification of signature the extension loads fast. I refactored my code to bring down the package size and the no. of files and then it was all within acceptable limits.
I will try to reduce the number of files in my project.
