Hi all,

 

I run an Imac Os Monterey 12.5.1. retrina 5K, 27 inch, 2020. 3,3 ghz 6 core intel core i5, 16 gb memory Mhz DDR4, AMD radeon pro 5300 4 gb

 

When ever i produce a book (usually 160-800 pages), during scolling through pages, the text on the next page is often not what it should be. It is usually text of a previous page. Futhermore the text crumbles.  Refreshing usually solves it, but i cannot trust what is on the screen. Sometimes i have to manually put a hard return after a sentence, to force reflow to be correct. After i mentioned this problem earlier, i added 8 gb of memory. Still not solved. Am i alone in this matter?

 

Any suggestions are welcome!

Best,

peter

What font are you using?

I think we might have seen something like this before where a font withthe same name is activated from Google FOnts and from Adobe Fonts at the same time.

A habit I use is to NOT scrollbar to pages, but rather use a double-click in the Pages panel to target/view pages. Also, instead of scrollbars, I often use Opt/Alt PageDown or PageUp. These techniques help make sure that InDesign refreshes the view of the page properly.

(Your problem does sound like you should turn off the GPU, which is often the source of display problems.)

There have been lots of issues on this board lately with corrupted font caches, so I'm going to suggest you clear yours to see if that solves anything. Your Mac has several: system-level caches, and also app-specific caches (Adobe, Quark, etc). If you have a font manager or a utility like Onyx or Cockatil, these usually haave scripts to delete font caches. You can also find instaructions on how to do it manually.
