Thanks for the reply. I never mentioned embedded. The BG images are always linked.
Not to repeat myself but this method works... right now in 184.108.40.206 perfectly. The exact same method as I've been using for eight years now, does not work in the new version.
So my point is, I haven't changed the way I do things. But the software has changed and now there are issues.
I tried what you said. Still laggy. Even when clicking image frame properties, it said "not responding" momentarily, but eventually loaded.
When I click a text box, it takes a second or two as well to become active. Just overall super slow performance. Plenty of ram available and computer is plenty fast as it handles three of Adobe's resource hoggers (PS, SW, AI) on a daily basis.
As I final test just to make sure...
I just opened my doc again in 220.127.116.11. Works perfect!
I just opened the same doc 1.4.4. Sluggish and laggy.
I've also created new documents using the same method and discover laggyness as well.
Thanks in advance
