GPU-Acceleration on Windows
It would be brilliant to have this as an option especially since more and more people are using high DPI/4K displays and the CPU is not capable of allowing for smooth zooming/scrolling/panning in most cases. It's working perfectly fine with Photoshop and rather good with Illustrator so I can't see why this shouldn't be possible with InDesign as well.
On my 4K Dell XPS 15 it's quite a pain to scroll through the document or zoom in and out, laggy as hell although this is a very poweful machine!
Thank you all for supporting this feature request.
Moving the feature request to the product backlog.

why they disabled this option? do you want me to buy a mac to use it? im not gonna do that Ineed this option back on windows, Indesign 2024 looks terrible without the GPU

Just started to learn and use InDesign today, and I'm totally amazed how outdated it is.
Just one hour of delving in the app brought up so many issues that if I could do my project in some other software, I would. No scrubby zoom, over all feeling of UI is quite terrible. Navigation between pages etc really clumsy. And no GPU-Acceleration!?!
Maybe Adobe thinks that AI is going to do all the layout-out soon and just stopped to develop this antique piece of software. I feel bad for those that have to use InDesign daily. Maybe they don't know better, how good the UI/UX can be when it is well done.
New Indesign version is released.... and still no sign of GPU and/or Multicore support and/or Windows-Trackpad support. But a dozen other features no one cares about. This is so frustrating.

Adobe, please provide an update to this. This would be hugely beneficial to all users, noticing the current performance difference when switching from mac to windows.

@Abhinav kaushik? Any update after 2 years?
Yo Adobe, this feature was suggested in 2017 (!) and "in backlog" since 2021... what the **** are you guys doing?
Everything just FLIES on my Dell Laptop and I can edit 4K60 videos no problem, but using Indesign on Windows makes me feel like I'm back in the 90s with an Intel Pentium CPU.
You are much too comfortable with the fact, that Indesign is unfortunately the industry standard - you guys don't care anymore, but gladly take our money for it!

Any news about this topic? GPU acceleration and multi-threading on windows?
Sebastian Nagel commented
this is getting ridiculous ...
Indesign is "supporting" hiDPI-Displays (4k etc.) on Windows, but has no GPU acceleration at all AND running on a single CPU core – making 4k support completely useless as the screen output is soooo slow.
I start to think they have driven away all competent developers or even lost source code for that part of the program, and just can't update it anymore, trying to hide that fact for as long as possible.

Pretty embarrassing for Adobe to taking this long to finish...
Rob Hutchings commented
Backlog since 2021 - can we get an update on timelines?
We really need to be able to zoom in >4000% and other general performance/navigation improvements

As an aside, for those who are concerned about InDesign performance overall, I recommend upvoting this thread:
It applies for both Windows and Mac.
There is also one for Illustrator performance:
Check back in 2023...

I can't believe that in 2022 this kind of program doesn't have GPU acceleration for Windows users!
It is even worse to know that even for Apple computers the option is only available for some Mac systems.
This really is a shame specially when the competition already has support for GPU acceleration and the price of the software is A LOT cheaper!
I was searching for a reason why indesign runs so poorly and came across this... I have a core I9, RTX gpu and Indesign runs hillariously bad... This is a must!!!
Яковлев Алексей commented
I am amazed and disappointed. The lack of GPU support in the new version of indesign is a horror. Even the covid 19 quarantine and the netflix shows look less terrible and disappointing
Yay! A new version of InDesign! Now, certainly, after literally 5 years of asking, they've incorporated GPU acceleration...

Its been years!!! When and "added to the product backlog" a year ago.. when will this be released?
for the amount of money you guys are making from creative cloud subscriptions, this is a spit in the face to your users.
