    Seconded! It would be good to have an option to either disable the Home button, or move it away from the 'File' menu item... say on the right under the close window button. Hitting the home button will instantly save and close your existing document, without warning. This is exceptionally annoying if you've done changes to a document (or using another document as a template) and want to save a new version, and accidentally hit the home button rather than the 'File' menu item to choose 'file > save as'. I've accidentally saved over many documents because of the placement of this button that I otherwise never use. The same is across all the Adobe apps that have this button.

    Unless there's a way of having the panels within the Properties Panel expanded by default, it's useless to me as far as text is concerned as I have to keep clicking to expand the options I need... otherwise, it's not really showing much more than the top toolbar and therefore just takes up extra real-estate.

    Hello All,

    Following up on the comments stating that the issue is yet not fixed, we did our investigation and found that, the issues being called out in the comment section, though maybe relevant but are different than the one for which this thread was originally created.

    This particular thread caters to a very specific case which has been fixed in the last update of InDesign.

    If you continue to face performance related issues with InDesign, we sincerely request you to create a separate thread so that we can categorize the performance related issues and address them completely.
    In addition to track the performance issues effectively, it will also enable us to reach out to you in a organised manner when we investigate into each category of performance issues.

    We are extremely sorry for the troubles you are facing with InDesign and we are determined to resolve them as efficiently…

    I'm also experiencing a slow down, mainly when you select a text box for the first time and working with fonts.

    This also may be relevant to slowdowns experienced. There has been what I consider a 'Bug' in Indesign for the last few years with shared hyperlinks.

    I do a many publications that have hyperlinks, one monthly publication has over 200 as it has a catalog near the end of the mag. I have to make these hyperlinks not shared. If I keep them shared, every time I would move an object or select something, Indesign would stall for 5-10 seconds or more while it starts re-checking links. I could see a temp file being created, deleted rapidly in the folder of the 'parent' document (and if you're using Onedrive, that temp file would also be syncing and re-syncing). Very annoying.

    You can usually quickly see if you have shared hyperlinks by clearing your 'Recent history', then open your publication, change a minor thing, save then close. Now you may see that not only your doc is in the recent history, but also a few others that were 'opened' as they share hyperlinks.

    It's a pain that whenever you add a hyperlink, it's 'Shared' by default and I can't see any way of turning that off by default.

    If you have lot's of shared hyperlinks in your doc and you don't want to edit them all to 'not-shared', and you know where the parent doc is, rename or move the parent doc, then Indesign wont be able to check shared hyperlinks and won't slow down.

    UPDATE:

    Reciprocal links DO export for ePub, however they do not for pdf.... so still investigating aas to why links are not generated in pdf export.
