Program/interface slow to open with high CPU usage.

Recommended Posts

1. Publisher takes 65 seconds to start (no file is being opened), with a steady 25% CPU usage during that time.

2. Once Publisher is running (with no file open), the first time clicking on interface tabs takes the following times before the panels display their content:

  • Character, Paragraph, Text Frame, Text Styles: 10-20 seconds each
  • Pages, Layers, Table of Contents: 5-10 seconds each
  • Preferences: 10 seconds

CPU usage during each of these initial panel openings is a steady 25%.

After opening them the first time, subsequent panel openings are fast with minimal CPU usage within the current Publisher session.

If Publisher is exited and restarted, the same behaviour of excessive times and CPU usage is repeated.

My system environment is:

  • Publisher Beta
  • Windows 7 Pro 64-bit w/SP1, 8GB RAM
  • Total of 254 fonts installed

(The same behaviour described above also occurs with Publisher

Hello Pauls:

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, unfortunately, I am still experiencing the same delays and CPU usage described above with Publisher beta.

The only system difference is that I now have a total of 519 fonts installed.

Hello Pauls:

Please find attached an annotated Task Manager screen shot taken during Publisher beta startup and usage.

No  document file was opened during this test.

I am unable to get Task Manager to display a performance graph of disk usage, only of CPU activity.
