I have a display's issue with Indesign. Actually, I work with a 4K screen connected to my macbook. Everything is working but not the display of pages. I've to work at 300% cause if I'm at 100% the size of files is too tiny. I'm creating for digital and print also, then it's impossible to work at real and true size.

Thanks for reaching out. InDesign has various options under Display performance in order to gain a performance boost.
InDesign has three options for how images/graphics are displayed, which you can access via View > Display Performance.
Fast: Displays a gray box and you won’t see the image at all
Typical: Shows a low-resolution proxy
High Quality: Shows a high-resolution proxy
Viewing images at high-resolution (High Quality Display) forces InDesign to constantly re-draw elements as you move around the document, increase the CPU usage. Setting the default to Typical (InDesign/Edit > Preferences > Display Performance) renders the images at a screen-friendly resolution.
Please try "Typical Display" and let us know if it makes the display better.

By default InDesign’s 100% view on the main monitor is the physical output print size—if you show rulers 1" should measure 1". To get the 100% view of the physical print output InDesign gets the main monitor’s PPI from the OS, so the print display on a 2nd monitor wouldn’t be accurate unless it happened to have the same PPI resolution as the main monitor.
Prior to CS6 InDesign’s 100% view matched Photoshop’s—a 1:1 ratio of the monitor and image resolution. It is possible to change the 100% view via scripting, and there is a long discussion from 2012 here:
