Lately InDesign is nearly unusable. Almost every action from selecting objects, resizing objects, or moving objects comes with a really slow reaction time. Even when clicking between panels in the toolbar there is a delay of about half a second.
I have tried ruling out potential issues like updating graphic drivers and embedding all resources into the document. Nothing works it seems like the application is just unstable. Please advise, I love to work with indesign but this is overall a very bad user experience.
Selecting an item (e.g. text frame) in small and really uncomplicated documents has slight but very noticeable delays/lags, almost as if the click hangs and makes the item drag a little instead of just being selected. Very annoying behaviour which makes for potentially sloppy layouts. I feel like I constantly have to be on my guard not to accidentally move an item by a slight amount when just wanting to select it.
Catalina 10.15.1 on MBP 2017. InDesign 184.108.40.206. But had this issue on CC 2019 and Mojave too. Thought it may have to do with GPU performance, but disabling it does not help.
Have been a long time ID user, and figured this was just a temporary thing that eventually would get fixed, but since upgrading to the latest, this has me concerned it may never disappear again.
Please, please fix.

I have also been having the same issues lately. I am working on a book layout and InDesign is lagging so much when it comes to rearranging text boxes, adding image frames, adjusting frames that already exist! I started using this last week and it's already dropped in performance which is super disappointing because I am almost done with the whole book layout! Adobe, please fix this!

I have the same issue! InDesign it's too slow! (iMac 27", Intel Core i9, 32Gb RAM, Radeon Pro Vega 48, etc)
Hello., does anyone from Adobe monitor this site? I mean I took the time to write this report..
