I'm writing my doctoral thesis on a Macbook pro using MS Word 2011 and Endnote X6 (Mac Word and Endnote on the newest version). Word responses really slowly to any input like typing or scrolling, with a delay of sometimes more than 4 seconds. Super annoying. My google-research on the problem led to the conclusion that there is no resolution yet. BUT: a workaround is to kill the process "appleeventsd" in Activity Monitor.
And that works super well, killing it lets word respond immediately again, without any delay.
Now my problem: appleeventsd starts again after a couple of minutes, sometimes just 2. This is really annoying because I can't really concentrate on working for a longer period of time as I always get interrupted by having to kill appleeventsd.
Does anybody have an idea how to fix this? What is appleeventsd doing for me? Do I even need it? Could I completely delete it from my system in order to prevent it from starting again? Or can I at least prevent it from restarting after I killed it so I can focus on working without interruptions?
Thank you so much for your help!!
