high CPU usage version 17.2
as referred in these posts there is a performance problem with indesign that coming from version 17.0 and still exist(version 17.2):
No answer from Adobe , No fix , nothing unfortunately. It uses about 20 % of CPU when you open Indesign , it does not matter there is a document that is opened or not , it uses 20% of CPU all the time. non of other Adobe's 2022 apps have this weird problem.
For me Adobe InDesign 17.4 x64 still idles at 2-3% after creating an empty document, minimizing, and leaving it for a while.
No other process comes close to that when "idling", since its quite a good CPU, even if it is a few years old: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710MQ CPU @ 2.50GHz.
The percentage will of course be higher with a slower CPU.
InDesign usually stops responding for 15-30 seconds now and then – for different actions such as creating a new document, and when closing the same document without saving. Things that was instantaneous in previous versions.
