Screen not refreshing

Every time I make a text change in InDesign, the screen doesn't refresh properly.

It displays the edited text but also the text prior to the edit.

It refreshes when I click on an object, so I can work with it, but it is annoying nevertheless.

I am running a brand new iMac and am having no other apparent problems, other than the screen refresh glitch in InDesign.Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 10.47.29 AM.png

Click on the rocket ship icon and turn off GPU performance.

Thanks! Clicking on the rocket and turning GPU Performance off worked.

As a bonus, it still worked when I switched it back on, so I'm guessing it just needed to be toggled to reset itself.

Where can I find the rocket ship icon? I'm on a Mac, guessing it's a windows thing?

The rocket ship is gone in 2020, go to InDesign/Preferences/Performance. Turn off GPU rendering there. (Mac only).

Yes, but I am on Windows 10 Pro, so apparently there is no GPU rendering.

So am I correct in assessing that Adobe has no help for Windows users experiencing this issue?

I am on Windows 10 Pro with InDesign CC v15. there is no rocket ship. What is not refreshing are the footers which use text variables--the only way I can get them to display a change is to move to the spread before or after and then move back. Is there a keyboard shortcut which can be used to refresh the page?

Hi Fred,

look into your keyboard shortcuts. There should be a "Force Redraw" command.

In my German InDesign 2020 on Windows 10 it's listed like that:

 

Produktbereich : Ansichten, Navigation
Aktualisierung erzwingen --- Standard: Umschalt+F5

 

The default KBSC is: Shift+F5

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
