Indesign performance issue : slow opening, saving, exporting files

InDesign taking up to 5 minutes to open a file. The file is a one-page document. Two minutes of nothing, then 2 minutes of a blue status bar, then another minute watching the tiny status bar on the application icon in the doc. Once the file is "open" it isn't visible until I toggle back and forth between InDesign and another application. Saving, even after changing only one text character, takes 55 seconds. Exporting a 30 page document to PDF took 20 minutes.

    JUST UPGRADED TO OS X MOJAVE, and now InDesign has slowed down, especially 1) opening a document and 2) saving a document. Is Adobe aware of this?

    Absolutely useless. Clicking on the file menu causes a spinning wheel for 2 minutes. Trying to export a PDF takes anywhere from 10-60 minutes. This is extremely annoying and makes it impossible to use this program for professional work.
