Ok, I figured it out. My Mid 2010 Mac Pro (48GB ram, 8-cores) stops at Mojave. The hacks I came across looking to get my machine to run Catalina didn't thrill me. CC suggested I find earlier application versions, I was able to take one step back with my desktop publishing applications, and they quit crashing on me.

In addition to your OS, which version of Photoshop are you using?

 

Make sure your computer meets the minimum CPU & GPU requirements. Most Creative Cloud apps work on:
Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2, 2004, and 1909 (LTSB branches are not supported)
macOS 12 (Monterey), macOS 11 (Big Sur), macOS 10.16 or 10.15 (Catalina)

It took me a while to take-in the wide vista of application logos that came with my newly installed CC interface before I finally zero'd in on InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Bridge, and Acrobat. That's all I want or need. Meanwhile, I've been watching eBay to see what the 3rd-generation Mac Pros are going for.

 

Thank you for listening to a cranky old typesetter who learned the trade from the guys pounding out hot metal type using Linotype and Monotype keyboards.
