high cpu usage indesign
I am periodically experiencing high CPU usage with InDesign 13.0 x64 on Windows 10. The CPU remains high even while not actively using InDesign and doesn't stop until I quit and relaunch the application. This issue only started happening within the past few weeks, probably after the most recent update.
I'm attaching a screenshot from the Task Manager showing 50% CPU consumption. Please note that my laptop is quad-core. That means InDesign is fully consuming 2 CPUs (4 threads) continuously.

InDesign 14.0.3 is using a lot of CPU and energy. No document is open, InDesign is running in the background but still uses over 50 % of the CPU and a lot of memory. Still this program is not production ready. I’m really disappointed about the quality of this release.
