Indesign performance issue : Object movement
Indesign is always giving me rainbow wheel even if I edit small slides.
Thank you for reporting the issue to us.
In the latest version of InDesign, Id 14.0.3
We have fixed multiple scenarios where the movement of objects was found to be slow.
Please upgrade your InDesign application to the latest version to try out the fix.
If you are unable to see the update yet, go to Creative Cloud desktop application, open the menu (three dots) from the top-right corner and click on ‘Check For App Updates’.
If you face any problems with the new update, do let us know in the comments.

Found another possible workaround. Mac OS 10.13.4, InDesign 14.02. Turn off all networking once you have InDesign up and running. Go into System Preferences - Network. Turn off Wi-Fi, if you have on. And turn off Ethernet, if you have on. And any other connections to the internet. You will lose the "cloud" features, but at least you will be able to work.

Work for 10-15 seconds, then 10-15 seconds of rainbow wheel, sometimes longer, much longer. It is killing my productivity.
My InDesign file I'm currently working on has 32 pages, with many linked photoshop images and Illustrator files. Multiple fonts due to various ads. Converted some to outlines.
I've turned off Preflight, but it didn't help.
I'm getting this too. I initially thought it might be a font because sometimes it seems to be better when I turn Suitcase Extension off but it returns before too long. What sometimes seems to help is Turning Display Performance to Standard View but who can work like that?? Atm, I'm modifying Object Styles of images & it's happening again (big time), despite above tests. It's a file that has been used/re-used & modified for many years. I've saved as idml as well but it seems it might be a more general problem.

My Indesign CC 2018 is constantly freezing. I've tried fast display, on and offline. Small and large documents. I'm fully updated. Please help!
Also having this problem with InDesign CC 2018. Recently became MUCH worse.

Yep, same here. Two year old, six core Mac Pro with twin Firepro D500s, but editing a simple one page flyer (with no graphics placed at all, just text boxes!) every object movement, scroll, or item creation gives me a second or two lag with the spinning ball. Never had this issue until the latest update.
Currently updating again today (April 4) and I hope to @#$# it fixes it because it's maddening and a massive workflow killer having to stop every few seconds to wait for Indesign to keep up.

Thanks for writing to us regarding this concern. Please share a sample doc with us for trying the issue at our end for further investigation.
I am having the same issue but MUCH MUCH worse now with the new update.
I have a Macbook Pro, INDesign CC.
