Working in Text frame is very slow

Recommended Posts

Try switching off hardware acceleration (if on)

Can you record a video showing the issue?

Can you share a sample .afpub document that illustrates it, and tell us exactly what you are/were doing? "Working in textframe" is a very vague description.

Does this happen with all documents, even a new one? Or does it just happen in one document? If so, how big is the document, and what does the text frame contain?

I have the same problem: At the beginning everything is fast and good - with time the work on text frames gets slower and slower.
My machine: Windows 11 Pro 22H2, AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 3400G with Radeon Vega Graphics 3.70 GHz.
The problem also existed in version 1 at the beginning, but disappeared after an update.
The problem is reproducible. The settings in "Performance" have no effect. 

It is an average booklet: 36 pages.

Hello. I'm having a problem with V2 on Win 11. The text cursor disappears when I move it, and takes about one seconds of delay to show again (when working on text frames). It's very annoying. I'm used to work with In Design, where no such things happen. I checked V1 and it has a similar issue, but much less proeminent. There's some workaround for this, or is it a bug?
I'm trying to move off from adobe, but this little thing is a real let down for me.
