Is there a way to temporary turn off the 'live update' feature of cross references between separate indesign files?
We find this feature to be a real pain if more than one person is trying to work with the files as it slows everything dramatically.
I've searched through the DOM and Adobe InDesign CS6 (8.0) Object Model JS: Table of Contents but I guess I don't know the right terminology to look for.
Hope you can help.
YES John please - an essential simple feature which will help freezing of document occuring (ie book with # files)
did you find a way to turn off live update of cross references in the GUI of InDesign? No? No.
