How can we improve InDesign?

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!

    Why is this not on Windows? I really don't get it, it's 2019 and we still don't have such a basic thing like GPU acceleration in InDesign for Windows. We're all gonna appreciate it.

    It is April 2019 when I post this with InDesign 2020 in prerelease currently and GPU Acceleration in Windows is still not a feature in the latest prerelease version of InDesign for Windows! @Adobe - how hard is this to implement? Maybe in 2022?

    +100!! I'm a student and since the last update is has become a pain ********** to work with InDesign! My laptop is new, lots of memory available, so I'm running out of options now. Is it that hard to ensure that everything works fine before you give an update?

    Please make this a priority. As it stands right now it’s impossible to work with documents that have a huge number of tables with information on 4K. I have a 2080 RTX and it does nothing while working on a Mac a few years old has no problems at all.

    I am a Brazilian user, we need this optimization. Are there any predictions of when we will get this improvement?

    Please add GPU acceleration for WIndows 10; we've just switched to Windows and I've got an NVidia GTX 1060 waiting to be used in InDesign!

    Please add this for Windows!
    We have a new Dell 4K Windows workstation for InDesign work, and it copes OK using the CPU for graphical intensive tasks, although a bit stuttery when quickly scrolling pages. But it would be fantastic to allow these tasks to be offloaded to its more than capable Radeon RX 580 8GB GPU.
