    • InDesign lags when rearranging text boxes, adding image frames, adjusting frames that already exist
    • Selecting an item (e.g. text frame) in small and really uncomplicated documents has slight but very noticeable delays/lags, almost as if the click hangs and makes the item drag a little instead of just being selected.
    • Performance degradation is observed if more than 1 document is opened
    • Creating packages (File > Package) takes so much time – especially collecting image files into the Links-folder. This behavior is generally observed with Illustrator files.
    • Performance degradation is observed while working on indd document and not with the IDML of the indd document.
    • Lag observed for almost every action from selecting objects, resizing objects, or moving objects

    I agree -- this is ridiculous. Used to be able to fly through Indesign. Now I feel like I need to write off half the time I;m spending to design with it.

    Honestly it feels as though every time I make even the slightest adjustment to a text item that the application is reaching out to the Mother Ship to verify that I have the licensing permissions to use it. Good grief, you took a wonderful app and turned it into a train wreck.

    What's going on and how can we get back to previous speedy performance?

    Thank you
