Can anyone help? Indesign (and Illustrator and Photoshop) are recently running very slow. Each click results in thinking/spinning wheel which is making it almost impossible to use the apps. They have previously been fine. I am no expert but my system details are below.
Thanks in advance
Model: iMac 19,1
Processor Name: 6-Core Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 3.7 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 6
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 9 MB
Memory: 8 GB
Hi @Alan22639980vfg0 I'm sure this has been frustrating for you. The biggest problem is that your system barely meets the minimum requirements to run the latest CC versions of these apps. It's possible you can function with 8GB of RAM but 16GB is much better. The Intel i5 is also dated. What you can do is try to roll back to some earlier versions where things were working fine and/or try to optimize performance if you can't upgrade your computer right now.
Here are some recommendations for fixing slow performance in InDesign: Slow performance in InDesign (adobe.com)
And for Photoshop: Optimize performance Photoshop (adobe.com)
Let us know how it goes.
