    Having the same issues since updating to the latest version of InDesign (14.0/14.0.1). Every time I start InDesign, I get the spinning beach ball for an excruciatingly long time. I tab away to accomplish other tasks and then check back later to see if it's usable. Similarly, when I load the Text panel for the first time, I get the same beach ball. I'm guessing this has something to do with Typekit syncing. I never had these performance problems on previous versions of InDesign, and this is incredibly inconvenient when I am slamming on urgent deadlines with not a minute to spare. I am on the 2017 iMac Pro w/ High Sierra (10.13.4). And yes, I know updating the OS may resolve the problem, but from what I've read on this forum, people with Mojave are experiencing freezing and similar if not worse problems.

    Hello All,

    Thank you for your patience all this while.
    We had launched our investigation into the matter to get to the root cause of the problem. As the part of our investigation, we had reached out to many of you personally over email.
    We have concluded our investigation and have come up with few findings.

    1. For many of the users the issue got fixed after updating InDesign to a newer version.
    2. For some, the issue got resolved after disabling a third-party application such as Suitecase fusion etc.
    3. For few, the issue was intermittent and is no longer reproducible.
    4. For majority of the users, the underlying cause of the performance issue was identified to be related to span columns, cross-references, third party plugin etc.

    We have created separated threads for these issues and we are now working towards resolving them.

    However, over the time this thread…

    To identify the cause of this issue, we had started our investigation with the aim to resolve it. You might have also received email from us seeking more details to help in our investigation.

    We’ve concluded our investigation and came up with the finding : Either the issue is fixed in the latest release of InDesign or the issue was intermittent in nature at the time of its reporting and is not reproducible now.

    We recommend you to upgrade to the latest version of InDesign 2020.0.1 (if you’re not already on it). It contains a lot of stability fixes.

    If you still face this issue even after updating to the latest version of InDesign, please submit the crash report to us. (The guidelines to submit crash are available at (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/submit-crash-reports.html)

    We seek your support in our continual effort to improve InDesign.

    Colleen, thank you for reporting this bug. It is extremely inconvenient losing access to Find in Story, and I hope this will be addressed soon!
