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.
Thank you for reporting the issue to us.
We have fixed the issue in the latest version of InDesign, Id 14.0.3
Please upgrade your InDesign application to the latest version to try out the fix.

This is still a problem for me using the most up-to-date version (15.0.1).

It seemed to be fixed.
But it is not.
Since a few days, InDesign is very slow again, hanging up and showing the spinning wheel for long moments.
Be really serious and fix this.
As prefessionnals, we have many things to do raher than watching the spinning wheel.
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.
