Hi, please can anyone help with my problem..? No matter how powerful the PC or Mac I have owned when working on 8 or 12 page A4 print brochures working with overprint preview on is so slow, placing logos, images etc I get the beachball, scrolling through the document it is laggy. Arrrrgh! Ok, so the workload hasn't changed in the last 5 years I have been doing this as a job, but the spec I have has and really nothing changes, same old lag issues. Below I shall detail the current hardware and software. Also important to note that all preferences have been changed and trial and errored to no avail. Most importantly settings such as 'live screen drawing' have been disabled. Computer 1: Mac Pro (Hackint0sh) Mac OSX 10.6 InDesign CS5 Intel Quadcore i7 920 3.5Ghz 12GB 2200Mhz DDR3 Ripjaw RAM nVidea 8800 GTS 640MB GPU Computer 2: iMac 27" Mac OSX 10.6 InDesign CS5 Intel Quadcore i7 2.8GHz 8GB 1067 DDR3 RAM ATI Radeon HD 4850 What I don't understand is although some of our documents can be intensive in terms of links and high res background we also package our work and resample images etc to help. The bottom line is, I have spent time Googling the issue, trying different things, upgrading to what is considered more than enough for what we are doing etc.. What on earth are people using to create billboards or games etc.. I'm really frustrated because the simplest of things like dragging a box across a page can result in time outs and so on.. It's not like it's as bad as I have described all the time but generally it feels as though we suffer while we work. The same problem has occurred whether it's been on a Windows install, Mac various hardware changes. What the hell!!!? Fingers crossed for any help.. Thanks.
