GREP styles make UI drastically unresponsive in CC (while still fine in CS6)
Indesign 14.0.1, german, win7
For comparison in Indesign CS6 create a fresh single-page standard document, DinA4. Create a large textframe with 2 columns on page, fill frame with blind text. Have some styles with GREP styles looking for charactercombinations... (I know GREP styles are computationally intense, that's not the point.)
Click and drag the the textframe with the mouse. The text gets greeked/switched off, the frame border is refreshed/re-drawn like 80 frames per second silky smooth WITH the grep styles. Save the document. Open that document in Indesign CC. Click and drag the frame - it's slow, like 2-5 frames per second slow. Not 80 frames per second smooth.
Delete the GREP styles from the styles and drag the frame now - redraw is smooth.
Please fix. It makes Indesign CC a pain to work with compared to CS6. Worked well for years.
this is the closet to the issue we have. We use Grep and Paragraph Styles a lot. It was working fine in CC 2017. since we updated to CC 2019, it is now terribly slow to edit copy. If I remove the Grep it works fine. But then all the Grep is gone and styling is gone. Breaking link to styles doesn't help, because the grep is still imbedded in the copy itself.
