Placing images into my file is delayed or 30 sec! really painful! not sure what to do. (I have a load of Ram and massiv Graphic Card) any solutions anyone ??
What operating system?
What version of InDesign?
What image types, some types, like large PSD files, or even tiny Jpegs, or is it PDF or Illustrator files?
One step that is common fix is to reset your preferences
I am using all files mentioned above (other than AI files)
Version is 2021
Operating System- 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Give the reset preferences a go - instructions and link in my last post.
Is it all files or just this file?
Just that file - use File>Export and choose IDML - and open that IDML file in InDesign (File>Open)
I will try saving as IDML for the file.
If I do the Preference Reset- what actually will happen?
Any custom preferences you have may be lost.
You can back it up before if you like
But restoring preferences is the no.1 option when something is not working as expected.
The IDML did not work- still really slow importing images in.
Have you tried re-booting the computer? Are you working across a network?
Yes I have rebooting multiple times and I have signed out of creative cloud. I working on a server in an office space
It's probably server lag - what have your IT said?
Try copying the files locally and see if the problem desists. If it works fine on your desktop, then it's probably some server setting.
see below for everything that I have done so far;
Note: this has all happend just after the 2021 Update
> I can go a start a brand new document and and there are no issues/ only issues with files that have content in then prior to the update
Whaat happens if you create a new document and move pages from the slow file to the new one?
>> Copied files to desktop to work locally
How did you do this?
Are you try to package file and work with this packaged file?
Good point there.
Copying linked files from a network location to the local machine won't automatically relink to the local copies.
