What if you have a compatible setup and you're opening InDesign with the laptop lid open, and it's still not activating the GPU? It's greyed out...?
We have two 2019 15" MacBook Pro's, i9 processors, 5K displays, 16GB Memory, 512GB Storage. Mine opens with GPU selected, all works fine.
Our other designer has the EXACT SAME setup but hers is not opening in GPU mode??
