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've had a minute to work through your suggestions, and done all you suggested, even down to deselecting the live spell checking, nothing has corrected the issues. I've created new pages, same results. I have to admit, the more I use it the more the Illustrator files and text boxes do seem to be stickier than psd, eps or tif's.
BTW - I am using the Apple Multi-Touch Magic Mouse. Now to be fair to Adobe, I've had strange anomalies with the Magic Mouse before, including erratic scrolling. It's a neat device, but not yet perfected in my opinion. I don't think they are related however, since CS4 still works smoothly.
Yea, I cant argue with that if there are only a dozen reports.
I think this is the only thread so far...
I'm having the exact same problem as well.
iMac 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
Mac OS 10.6.4
ATI Radeon HD 4850
CS4 works great as do my other CS5 apps.
Same issue for me also ... running on a 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 iMac
(8GB Ram. Mac OS 10.6.4. ATI Radeon HD 4850.)
CS4 works great ... no sluggishness.
CS5 has to stop and redraw anytime I move something. About a 1 second delay.
Setting Live Screen Drawing to Immediate is actually the least painful option. At least then I can see my object as I'm moving it. Using Never and Delayed causes everything to disappear until I let go of the object ... then it all pops back after about a second.
Tried all 3 settings – Never, Delayed and Immediate – and nothing fixes the problem. Will probably use CS4 unless they're able to correct this with an update.
Dude, I have that problem as well. Real annoying, havinbg to progress bar. What up w/ that?
Doh! I've jut spent the last hour fiddling with the settings, wondering why Indesign was instantly creating 0KB pdfs...
Are any of you using custom keyboard shortcut sets or anything similar that you imported from a previous version? In another thread that's just been linked to keys not working correctly.
What about font managers? (did I ask that already?)
I am not using any custom or otherwise keyboard shortcuts just a wacom tablet and mouse. Use Suitcase Fusion 2 for font management.
No on custom keyboard stuff. I'm using FontAgent Pro. However, when I created a test user, FontAgent was not running.
The problem for me seems to stem primarily from .ai files that are placed. When high quality preview is on, everything is horrible. If I'm just using photo images, although it slows, it's not nearly as bad.
Do things improve if you turn off Suitcase?
No change with suitcase off
No custom keyboard shortcuts here. Nothing imported from older files. I use FontDoctor to check for problem fonts, otherwise Apple's Font Book. I notice super stickyness regardless of the presences of ai files or not.
I have found something that slightly seems to help on my end. (Emphasize slightly helps) Going to, View > Grids & Guides, then deselecting everything. This helps with a bit of the jumping in high res. I figure it is like eliminating speed bumps in the road. It makes the ride a little smoother. Maybe it will help you guys a bit.
It's still awful, but just a bit less awful, and I will take any improvement I can get.
How about turning off preflight?
Any cross-references or hyperlinks?
Turning off preflight did not change anything. I tried turning of the snap to grid and smart guides, which doesn't help, but does make the experience seem smoother because of the "not snapping". If I put in a super simple vector file, it's not as bad.
I'm having the exact same issue with moving graphics around in ID CS5, new or older documents... and that's with 16GB RAM and a 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT video card. I've never experienced it in CS4.
Hoping it will get fixed in an update.
Wayne, is it the same for vector files as it is for bitmaps? My issue is significantly worse with .ai files vs. psd's.

Adam, Huh, hadn't noticed but just checked it out. It's the same with vector and bitmaps. Like you I use place native .ai and .psd files.
I move something with the mouse and curser and it steps across the page.

Why can't there just be a smooth transition. "Literally" on two counts.

Yeah, sux when you're trying to move something just a little and it's bouncing around like a house fly with a dose of Raid.
What are you guys using for mice? The newest Apple mouse does not seem to get along well with ID as far as scrolling, and I think I may have seen some posts about trying to drag page items, too.
Peter, I'm using a Logitech Revolution MX mouse. That's an interesting thought. I'll try some other mice today.
BTW I'm running 2560x1600 on the main 30" monitor with 24"s on each side of it. One for ID palettes, one for email.
you definitely have too many monitors going. that's your problem.
send one to me and your indesign will FLY.
That's what I love about these forums Ben, everyone is just so helpful and accommodating.
How many pixels is that, all added together?
Are you running ID by default in high resolution? That may bog down the entire system a lot.
I don't know how many pixels my "cinerama" amounts to. The Mac Pro runs a couple of heavy duty graphics cards and I know that in any of the CS4 products I never had this issue.
I'm not a ranter, I can live with this. I'll wind the display down to "Typical" and see if that helps.
