What is this thing that's been happening on Intel chips and now Apple chips where Id takes minutes to boot after quiting/force-quiting it earlier, sometimes finally opening after 3 – 5 tried, and other times never opening and requiring a complete computer reboot?

 

Is there a solution to this or is this the price of admission?

 

(Mac mini M1; 16 GB RAM; Id Prerelease 16.3).

Using it for a few days. But this has been a long-standing issue that went back into Intel chip days, so I doubt it will be corrected.

 

But I'll keep you up to-date and hopefully you never hear from me again on this. ;>)

Using Monterey 12.0 Beta (21A5294g) now, with version 16.3.2.151 of Id. But this has been happening for years in pretty much the exact way you see it happening in the video attached. At this point I have to reboot or log out.

 

Bonus: With the versions above for the OS and Id, I will leave my Mac for a period, the screensaver will come on, and when I return, pretty much everytime, Id will have quit without warning.

Hi there,

 

I would suggest you to roll back to macOS v11.5.1 Big Sur and see how it performs there. Also, after rolling back to Big Sur, if you encounter slow performance in InDesign, please try booting the system into Safe Mode (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/x-productkb/global/start-safe-boot-mode-mac.html) and check how it works there. It starts your system to perform certain checks and prevent third-party software/ services from automatically loading or opening.

 

I will be looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini

The title rename is misleading. It SOMETIMES takes a long time to boot, and it also happened on Intel Mac machines.

My InDesign beta won’t launch. Or rather, it will, but only to display an error message, then quit.

Screenshot 2021-08-03 at 5.18.48 PM.png

Beta is version 16.3.0.5

Current version is 16.3.2.151

Hi @Scott Falkner,

 

Sorry for the delayed response. This message is shown when the beta is expired. You may download the current version, i.e., v16.3.2, or you may download the new beta version from the Creative Cloud app under the Beta Apps section. If you want to use only this beta version, could you please tell us the reason for it? It will help us understand and assist you accordingly.

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini
