Hi

I've only just uploaded to Big Sur and updated Indesign to 16.2.1.

I am having terrible trouble with the speed of Indesign now and I'm constantly getting a spinning beach ball for the smallest tasks, such as dragging a copy of an image.

I have 16gb of RAM on a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017) and haven't had issues in the past.

Any suggestions?

Thanks 🙂

I have a MacBook Pro (15 inch, 2016) with 16Gb of RAM, Big Sur and InDesign 16.2.1. I have none of the problems you're experiencing.

 

To start with, I would restore your InDesign preferences and caches:

 

Adobe InDesign: Rebuilding Preferences and Cache Files ...https://www.rockymountaintraining.com › ad...

 

I'd also make sure you've updated to Big Sur 11.3.1.

 

If that doesn't work, you might uninstall InDesign and reinstall.

Thanks Steve,

I just followed all those steps but no joy.

I am using Big Sur 11.3.1 but I'll uninstall and reinstall and see how I go.

Thanks again 🙂

All my files are stored locally. Not having access to a server, I wouldn't have tbought of that. That could do it!
