We are typesetting in Adobe InDesign 2021 on MAC OS. In a particular Math book, each chapter contains around 3300 images. All the links are available in our shared server. After importing all those images in application file, then InDesign gets very slow. If any actions done in InDesign such as updating modified image, relinking image, text frame movement, moving to next page etc., it takes 5 to 10 seconds slower. We are struggling for paginating this file.
While composition we are keeping InDesign file in local path, disabled Preflight option and changed Display preformance to fast. Could you please suggest a solution for this slow performance issue.
I'd try (always in a copy of the work and links, please) to convert all the eps into lineart bitmaps (photoshop bitmaps, no screen, 50% threshold, 800 ppp (yes, this is not a typo) at 100% final size ). You can do that with a batch action i n Photoshop pretty easily. Then you can relink those images ("same name, different extension")
The purpose of this is trying to reduce the load of vectors. 800 ppp solid ink bitmaps (no screen), should print all right (always "effective pixels").
It might help and it does not take too much time or effort to try it.
