My Indesign is very slow once I installed Mac OS Mojave 10.14.
Then I updated my Indesign, downloaded the plug-in, and upgraded my Mac OS to 10.14.1. It didn't help.
Even worse, when exporting to PDF, some (parts of ) visual elements are missing on the PDF.
Thank you guys.
When you installed InDesign did you use the option to import previous preferences and settings that appears in Advanced Options during the install? If you did then you may find that you will get better results if you get rid of the old preferences and caches. Please see this thread that was written for CC 2018 but still holds true for CC 2019 CC 2018 InDesign—Don't Import previous settings and preferences . Hopefully, you'll find that InDesign's performance will improve.
How old is the Mac that you've installed Mojave and CC 2019 on? I've found that the Macs that I've owned seem to get slower and slower as I've upgraded the OS. It does make some sense since what was the best processor when I bought the computer is no longer so by the time that the much later OS comes out. Please be specific about what computer you're using as well as what exactly is happening when you make a pdf (post a screen shot if possible).
It’s a 2017 MacBook Pro ...

Have you turned off the GPU Performance in Preferences (Mac only)?
There are known issues with CC:2019 that Adobe is working to correct, and speed is one of them. Failed PDFs or PDFs that are missing elements are also a problem for some users. At our studio, some projects have problems but not all of them.
RE: the PDFs, try using one of the other export presets, such as Press Quality or PDF/X-4. If this still doesn't correct the problem for you, you might need to temporarily roll back to CC:2018. (Save your CC:2019 file to IDML and you'll be able to open it in earlier versions.)

Turning off GPU seems to help. Still could be faster.

Why is that? …
could be stitching artefacts when transparency is flattened.
What are your export settings? Can you show a screenshot?
Will the "white lines" go away, if you change some settings in your Acrobat preferences for Display > Rendering ?
[ ] Use 2D graphics accelaration
Then play with:
Smooth lne art
Enhance thin lines
Note: Transparency will not be flattened if you export with a PDF/X-4 export preset.
I bought my MacBook Pro in June 2017 with all the fixings (additional memory and everything) directly from Apple. I've had the same problem as what you described. I still cannot fix my issue. How has your problem resolved itself in the end? The preference list for Indesign wasn't where they said. I cannot find it. I'm not sure if I did things right or not when upgrading the 2019 version...
