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!
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!
Considering you have to pay the same money for CC on macOS and Windows it is really not a professional thing to have GPU support for the one and not have it for the other.
Is there at least a good reason for that? Is Adobe working on including it in Windows?

Please, Adobe, develop GPU acceleration in Windows urgently!
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.
Add me to the list

Please consider adding Windows support for the GPU-Acceleration feature. It's available in both Photoshop and Illustrator and works great, so why not make it available for Indesign as well? Mac OS users have had it for more than a year now.
It's a pretty jarring workflow to come from Illustrator with smooth scrolling and enhanced animated zoom to Indesign's jittery scroll and old school zoom.
Just something to consider.
why on mac yes and on windows not?
And it would be also great if gpu can be used for pdf exports. Long graphic heavy documents can still be such drag to export, even on the heaviest workstations.
