Hi, I'm using Adobe Indesign 2020, and run into the famous high CPU (100%) problem because of CEPHtmlEngine. Because of the high CPU is taking, my computer is continously loosing its battery even when it is properly charged and I cannot afford wasting the time waiting for it to be charged by quitting the software. I tried to find a solution, but all the working ones are referring to deleting / transfering content under a folder (CEP), which does not even exit in my Indesign app folder. Are there any solution for this?
Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing version of the OS? In addition to Manan's suggestion, I'd request to update Adobe InDesign to the latest version & see if it improves the performance.
Hi, occasionally computers use quite some power. I can hear this – the CPU cooling ventilator of my 27" iMac 27 (early 19) goes high and blows out very warm air – when I export a batch of 20-30 corrected RAW-files as JPEGs. I "blew" an earlier model that had no progressive cooling when exporting large batches of image files. Even my MacBook fan goes high – simultanously the back gets warm – when its CPU is busy with intensive work (e.g. installing the new operation system "Big Sur").
Obviously you work on a notebook. If you work mobile, you need at least a high capacity (!) powerbank to get enough additional battery capacity (they are almost as heavy as your notebook!). It is normal that many programs consume quite some energy, limiting the capacity of MacBooks or slim notebooks batteries.
To conveniently work with InDesign, I depend on a fast SSD 27" iMac and an additional 27" monitor, because I place and correct via InD fotos and graphics...
