Lately, when I switch between open files in InDesign, the program window goes completely red and hangs briefly before switching.  Any idea as to the cause of this?  I'm leaning that it's a software issue since it's happening on two separate machines.  All help is welcome.

Hi,

can you confirm the version of your InDesign and the operating systems you are using?

I would suspect the hardware (video card, Ram...) might create this situation.
