I'm having an issue with Indesign being very slow this morning. Maybe it's cold! There's a half second or so lag on every action. Very frustrating.

Have you tried turning off Live Preflight?

A the bottom of the document window, uncheck Enable Preflight for All Documents.

Try doing a Save As and incrementally rename it to clear out the crud that can build up in an InDesign document.

Operating system?

Version of InDesign?

Have you reset your preferences? If not give that a go and see if it fixes.

did reset my preferences, there is still a 2 second delay from when i click to when things happen (opening panels or selecting options). Also, i have to click on things twice (text frames or any frame) to selected, and if i drag, it take seconds for it to actually drag.
