Every time I make a text change in InDesign, the screen doesn't refresh properly.
It displays the edited text but also the text prior to the edit.
It refreshes when I click on an object, so I can work with it, but it is annoying nevertheless.
I am running a brand new iMac and am having no other apparent problems, other than the screen refresh glitch in InDesign.
Click on the rocket ship icon and turn off GPU performance.
Weirdly, I had to turn it ON to solve this problem.
Thanks! Clicking on the rocket and turning GPU Performance off worked.
As a bonus, it still worked when I switched it back on, so I'm guessing it just needed to be toggled to reset itself.
Where can I find the rocket ship icon? I'm on a Mac, guessing it's a windows thing?
No...it is Mac only and I don't know if the icon is there for 2020.
Same issue here, using Windows and CC2020. Is there a referesh screen button?
The rocket ship is gone in 2020, go to InDesign/Preferences/Performance. Turn off GPU rendering there. (Mac only).
Yes, but I am on Windows 10 Pro, so apparently there is no GPU rendering.
So am I correct in assessing that Adobe has no help for Windows users experiencing this issue?
I am on Windows 10 Pro with InDesign CC v15. there is no rocket ship. What is not refreshing are the footers which use text variables--the only way I can get them to display a change is to move to the spread before or after and then move back. Is there a keyboard shortcut which can be used to refresh the page?
look into your keyboard shortcuts. There should be a "Force Redraw" command.
In my German InDesign 2020 on Windows 10 it's listed like that:
Produktbereich : Ansichten, Navigation
Aktualisierung erzwingen --- Standard: Umschalt+F5
The default KBSC is: Shift+F5
