InDesign CS 4 (version 6.0.6) runs intermittently slow. It will often hang up for a few seconds during pretty much any operation (typing, scrolling, zooming, selecting -- type or objects, etc.). Restarting InDesign and the computer has no effect. Any ideas?
It's running on an iMac, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz, OSX 10.6.8.
One file or all files?
Pretty much all files, as far as I know. This is a computer at an office I work at. My own version of ID CS4 at home doesn't have this problem. Since posting, I saw a number of other postings about similar problems. I have yet to do any of general maintenance, such as repairing permissions or running disk 1st aid. Is that a first step? Is there some kind of cache in ID that can be cleared?
There are indeed caches, and the actual settings for things like page previews, Display Quality and whether or not Live Preflight is active will make some difference.
