I've been using the current version  of InDesign (16.1) with Big Sur (currently 11.2.3) and have had no problems with lagging.

 

Tell us more about your system: Please tell us (exactly) what InDesign version you're using. Please tell us what operating system (exactly) you're running. How much RAM? What kind of hard drive are you using?

You must know that the M1 chip uses it's own architecture called Apple Silicon.

Apple decided to move away from the x86 architecture that most of the Adobe software (and lots of others) operates on.

 

As such, any non-Apple Silicon apps that are  not native to it's own new architecture - like some Adobe software - are emulated on Apple Silicon using Rosetta 2 (from Apple).

 

As of now - there is no InDesign available that works on the Apple Silicon chip natively.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. I agree with the response given earlier. I'd request trying suggestions given on this community post(https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/resolve-slow-performance-and-unexpected-behavior-of-indesign...) & let us know if it helps to improve the performance of the app.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
