I noticed that FM9 was opening files much more slowly than previous FM versions and attributed it to the fact that FM9 was preloading all graphics at file open, instead of loading them only when I loaded the particular page in a file. I wrote Adobe about it and got this response: Begin Forwarded message ===================== You might have the "Insets Pod" open in your default workspace which causes all insets to load at the open of the document. To check whether this is a cause, please do the following: 1. Make sure "Hide Panels on Close" is unselected in the "File --> Preferences --> Interface" dialog (see InterfacePreferences.jpg). 2. Open any file (if not already opened) such that workspace loads. 3. Close the "Insets Pod" from the workspace (see InsetsPod.jpg) 4. Once you have done these steps, you should see graphics loading only on demand and not on open. End Forwarded Message ==================== Hope that helps, Mike Wickham
