There are many posts like this, I'm sure, but my latest version of indesign (17.1) seems to be running painfully slow when I try to edit certain text frames in certain documents. Even selecting a frame will cause lag.
It seems to only be happening on some specific ones. Sometimes I'll have to issue on a frame that has an effect applied to it (like a diffuse dropshadow). Copy-pasting the text into a new frame seems to fix it, but not always. Reapplying the master to the page also seems to fix it, but the slowness tends to return after a while.
I'm up to date with everything, running the latest Mac OS Monterey 12.1, and have tried reverting to a previous version of indesign, re-installing it, turning preflight on and off, changing the display performance to typical display, not being in overprint preview, previewing in GPU mode, ... Basically, all the good stuff after scanning the internet for solutions.
Anyone else with similar issues? Thanks!
