export book to pdf slows the mouse respond
Every time, when I export whole book into PDF file, my mouse starts to move with steps. Everything else is working more or less normally, but moving cursor is almost impossible.
Cursors respond with huge lag - around 1 sec, and moves in steps, what makes impossible to use the mouse.
I also know this problem.
Since InDesign CS2 (now CC 2019) we are working with books. When InDesign exports a book to PDF InDesign opens every file of the book in the background. And after the export you have to wait until InDesign have closed all the dokuments. This takes a lot of time, you cant work with the mouse and i think that this workflow is not up to date. We need the book funktion every day!
Adobe, please create a fast book export to pdf.

I have suffered from this bug for years, multiple machines, multiple installations. Only seems to affect Windows users.
This issue can be worked around by executing export via script.
The application will not display the progress bar, but mouse will not be slowed as well.
var ExportPath = app.activeBook.filePath;
ExportPath = ExportPath+"/"+app.activeBook.name.slice(0, -5)+".pdf";
app.activeBook.exportFile(ExportFormat.pdfType, new File(ExportPath), false, app.pdfExportPresets.itemByName("[High Quality Print]"));
I have the same problem. IndesignCC 2017 then 2019 + Win 10 (updated). During the pdf export the mouse is really very slow and is completely unusable.
I've opened a Centre Programme that I update as required on a regular basis and no response moving elements or text boxes INDD 2019 on Windows 10. Nothing is locked and was perfectly fine in previous versions.
I reverted to the previous version and I managed to update and save the document. Now to see if updating the reverted version updates and works as it should. Most bizarre.
