Indesign Beach Balling on Mac
We have a 2017 iMac that is running High Sierra 10.13.6 with InDesign 14.0.1 and with working on a US Letter sized document with a text box with a single line of type, and one placed image, we get beach balling.
First open the document, can do anything we want (from typing new text or moving the picture box on the page, to even selecting a menu item) for about 30 seconds to a minute. After that, the beach balling starts. Then it seems to freeze for about 30 seconds to a minute, and then we can do ONE thing before it will beach ball again.
Tried installing InDesign CC 18, same, tried InDesign CC 17, same. Even tried downgrading InDesign CC 19 14.0.1 down to 14.0 and still have the problem.
Forgot to mention a few other things I've tried. Changed 'Display Performance' from 'High Quality Display' to 'Fast Display', issue seemed to be a bit better but not all the way. Tried turning off 'GPU Performance' in the preferences, even though this Mac has a GPU that is supported. Still did not make a difference in making the beach ball going away.
