I've updated my Indesign to the latest update (as I always do). The performance has become unacceptably slow. A file that I was able to open and use normally with the previous version of the software now has become painstakingly slow to even do the most basic tasks. I am using a MacBook Pro from 2017 with a 3.1 GHz Quad-Core Intel i7. 16GB ram and a commensurate graphics card and plenty of hard drive space. The only difference is the Indesign update from 2021 to 2022. Can anything be done? I need to get work accomplished and presently can't.
Sorry to hear about your experience. I would request you to share a few more details like:

Hi Anshul, I did all the user's suggestions to solve the very very slow performance of Adobe Indesign. Non of the solutions work. I need a professional Adobe employee to solve the problem on my computer.
Sorry about the trouble. I'd recommend you to connect with our technical support team (https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen). The team here would be able to perform remote troubleshooting and assist you accordingly.
I was able to resolve my issue. The problem didn't exist when starting new documents. And since I was in a time crunch, I couldn't spend a great deal of time trouble shooting or rebuilding the file. I ended up exporting to and IDML, and reopening this fairly complex file from the IDML. It worked fine after that.
