Creating a catalogue with a large table FREEZING in indesign CC 2019
We've been making a large catalogue pricelist for over 13 years using indesign.
We're now stuck on the 2017 (12.1.0) version.
We want to update it, but in the latest version, importing our pricelist from excel into a table, slows the whole thing down to an unworkable speed.
the table is around 13000 rows by 10 columns. so not small.
it does import in the 2017 version. slow to import in both, but can use and work on after import in 2017 version.
2019, freezes when scroll used, and take 1-3 mins to unfreeze. Scroll again or do anything much else and freezes again.
I can see it's using 100% of 1 CPU core. And I know Indesign is built in a way that it can only use 1 CPU core! (please fix this!!!!)
Thanks for reporting the issue.
We are looking into it
Any progress? I've tried using a 3rd party plugin EasyCatalog to pull my data in to InDesign in a more efficient way. This works and looks great, but still have the FREEZING when scrolling. about 1-2 mins per scroll, it's horrible! All in CC2019. In the 2017 version it works with scrolling. What is causing the lagging?
What is in all versions of CC indesign above 2017 that isn't in 2017 version??
I've turned preflight off , reduced default quality to lowest settings, none of this helps it seems.
All help is greatly appreciated
