Help! I'm on a MacBook pro with the latest system software and latest Indesign. Indesign is taking 15 minutes or MORE to open and when it does, many of my links in the document are appearing glitchy. (and it's not a large document). I have the system equirements for Indesign and plenty of disk space. I reset my preferences. I'm now wondering if I should try reinstalling (?). Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Do you have such behaviour only with that one document or with all? 

 

Did you have normal work of ID before? What you do before that ID have such slow work?

 

Did you try to heal your publication by save as idml, open this idml and save with new name indd?

All ID documents are having these issues. It seems to have started after the last update to ID. Prior to this I was not having any issues. I have not tried the latter (save as idml) but will now, thank you. I don't want to have to start doing this to each document, any long-term solutions that would work?

>>  after the last update to ID. 

Ok, did you try to downgrade to the previous version?

Me too, InDesign has just crashed again, opened the document I was working on about 60pp and the text on the page I was editing has disappeared - all I was doing was applying a style to three words

IMHO, it's time to disturb Adobe Support Chat about your problems.
