InDesign – Improve Performance Using Layouts with Many InCopy Texts
Improved loading and saving times
Users coming from an older version to the current InDesign complain about lower speeds when saving a layout with many InCopy stories.
We have found out that the main cause of the slowdown is Adobe Typekit, that can not be deactivated. That this also affects the speed of censhare, was due to a new default function censhare introduced with version 4.7.9. Since then, it is in fact possible, to inject aIl paragraph styles existing in the layout into an InCopy asset. Whenever a layout with this many InCopy text assets is saved, it will be delayed by Adobe Typekit queries over the Internet. Customers can restore the original behaviour if they do not need this standard feature using the admin client.
Standard for 4.7.9 and all higher server versions
To receive the former behaviour open the admin client and go to the "configuration" folder, to the "Modules" folder, to the "Clients" folder and last to the "Client" folder. Open the "Client preferences" entry with a double click. At the end you fill find the "Edit XML-File" button. Click it in order to work with the configuration entries directly. Now search for the "include-all-styles-in-icml" entry in the section "<indesign". This parameter rules which styles are saved in the ICML-Asset. You can enter the values
<indesign … include-all-styles-in-icml="true"/>
"false" the saving of layouts with InCopy texts should be as fast as before.
<indesign … nclude-all-styles-in-icml="false"/>
With "false" only the used font styles and paragraph styles are saved into newly created ICML documents as before.
