I've installed InDesign CS5 and it's running terribly when I have graphics placed, especially at high resolution display. It's choppy, sticky - to much to even work with. I've thrown out the SavedData and InDesign Defaults, but it doesn't help. Has anyone else experienced this problem, or have any ideas what I can do. CS4 runs fine.
I just managed to speed up the InDesign a bit (maybe a bit more than a bit in my case):
In Preferences -> Interface
Set Tool Tips to None
- Show Transformation Values (they are on the top bar anyway no need to show them by transparent window by cursor).-
- Multi-Touch Gestures (unless you really need them).
- Auto-Collapse Icon Panels
- Auto-Show Hidden Panels
Hand tool - set to Better Performance (does not really matter I suppose but...)
Live Screen Drawing - set no never (actually it is hard for me to see the difference between never and delayed)
In View -> Extras
- Content Grabber
- Live Corners
- Application Frame
- Application Bar
If you uncheck control it really speeds up but this is what we do need I suppose.
Further you may consider (if not needed) to uncheck all from Preferences -> Track Changes
The differnce between Delayed and Never for Live screen drawing is what happens when you click and wait before dragging. With delayed you'll get a live update, with never you won't.
Thanks. Now I do copy that.
So this is such a place between two worlds.
You can't use immediate because it slows you down but if you have to, just this time, hold your mouse still for a while then drag.
So... if I set it to "never" my interface would have one dilemma less to consider. I stay by never.
Phorna, these are exactly the sort of concrete tips I was looking for. Extremely helpful. Thanks.
I've been using 7.0.3 and it seems to have a very positive impact on ID CS5 performance. I can run with a high quality display performance and enable live screen redrawing and things are working quite well.
My Applescript was running 10x slower on CS5 than on CS3.
I found that turning off Preferences -> File Handling -> Always Save Preview Images with Documents, fixed the script's speed problem.
Also turning the Display Performance to Fast (Optimized) at the beginning of the script and turning it back to Typical when complete helped for scripts that take more than a few seconds to run.
