Moving the IDLK temp file
It would be nice to have an option in Preferences to be able to move the temporary IDLK file which is automatically created at the same level as the edited file. Kind of like Photoshop.
Because if the edited file is located in a DropBox or GoogleDrive (or other) folder, Dropbox or GoogleDrive spend their time updating this file, which is very detrimental in terms of bandwidth and processor occupancy.

This is critically important for Google Drive and Dropbox users, to save temp files in a folder that is not subject to the delays of a synced folder.

This would also be a great option for Indesign Server! Some configurations use distributed file storage like Ceph and those would benefit, if the temp file is saved locally.

Please address this! Being forced to sync an evolving temp file can cause massive delays. (especially with plugins) At this point, the only way to work with large files and exports is to shutdown or pause the dropbox app. I am currently running an export that typically takes 4 hours and I am already at the 12 hour point with a ways to go because I forgot to disable dropbox sync!

When will the InDesign team answer???
Makes sense to me! Great suggestion!
