    This problem still persist with Indesign 16.1.0.20 (Mac) – five moths after it was reported by xxFEXxx!!
    To describe what happens for us with documents on shared file volumes (both smb and afp):
    • User 1 opens an indd document. A lock file is created.
    • User 2 opens the same document. The lock file disappears, and the document opens for user 2. However, the document is write protected.

    *** PROBLEM SOLVED *** due to great help here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/serious-indesign-server-slow-down-with-catalina/m-p/11599775.
    At least it is solved for us and can propably be permanently solved by Adobe
    1. There is a simple workaround: Making InDesign Server the front application brings back good performance.
    2. This workaround should be a pretty good lead for Adobe developers on what to to to permanently solve the problem.

    There is one very puzzling thing, that we have observed after I wrote this post :
    At some, very rare occasions the script suddenly runs as quick as it used to do before the upgrade – just above 1 minute.
    This have happened two times – out of around one hundred tries with the same script. In both cases it was executed by a soap call (with otherwise has become the slowest method with Catalina).
    Then, running the same script several times directly after such an occasion, gave us same disappointing results as usual: around 3:30 and sometimes more, from soap.
    This tells me there is a potential to run InDesign Server scripts as fast with Catalina as with Mojave – but, in most cases, the script is heavily disturbed by something...

    However... Indesign scripts became very slow with the upgrade to Catalina.
    The time for processing documents is 3-5 times longer - with huge variation between different executions of the same script.

    PROBLEM SOLVED!
    We added `bash` to the Full Disk Access list in the systems integrity panel – problems gone!
    I did add `launchd` and `sh` there before – but not bash.
    Maybe Adobe and Apple could do more here to guide the people setting up Indesign servers.

    However – strangely enough – a 'file' reference also works when defined by the script outside the InDesign tell block. So this also works:

    set imageFile to POSIX file "/path/to/IMG_2592.jpeg"
    --> file "Macintosh HD:path:to:IMG_2592.jpeg"

    set textFile to POSIX file "/path/to/test.txt"
    --> file "Macintosh HD:path:to:test.txt"

    tell application id "com.adobe.indesign"
    tell rectangle 1 of document 1
    place imageFile
    end tell
    tell text frame 1 of document 1
    place textFile
    end tell
    end tell

    The different ways to refer to a file seems to be fever with InDesign on Catalina . Using 'file' directly in the Indesign tell block does nor work for example. But using 'alias' with a HFS-path still works:

    tell application id "com.adobe.indesign"
    tell rectangle 1 of document 1
    place alias "path:to:image.jpeg"
    end tell
    tell text frame 1 of document 1
    place alias "path:to:text.txt"
    end tell
    end tell

    Confirming the problem. I haven't found any workaround.
