PS CS6 has a lot of enhancements and great features. it launches very fast, and the control is very responsive and smooth.

although i am experiencing some speed issues with very large files. compared to CS5.1, where i don't have any of these issues.

the files are PSBs, 9000x8000px, 80+layers, RGB, 8bit

i have the same performance settings for both, cs6 and cs5
i am working on MAC PRO, 16GB ram, SSD scratch, 2TB raid, Radeon HD 5770, Snow Leopard.

the main issues i have are:

- no refresh when i move the curve on adjustment layer. the refresh comes after i let go.
- jagged pan
- extremely slow moving of layers and layer groups, even if they are with smaller dimensions (800x400pix)

again, working with files with less layers or smaller dimensions is very fast.

thanks for your help and support!
m.

Just occured to me. Could a Wacom driver be involved with the odd issue I mentioned? Perhaps I need to experiment with that?

...because your video driver has a bug, and the driver gets reset when you reboot. Again, this was something we saw in older drivers, but it was fixed quite a while ago. Please try updating your video card driver (and follow the directions so you don't end up with bits of the old driver left around).

I was just reading through comments to see if there was any updates on the slow nudging and had to agree on the flick panning. Good old product managers! 😄 Does anyone actually use it?

Try these steps to fix most issues: http://bit.ly/Troubleshoot_PS

I agree with Chris that it could be a corrupt font/font cache.
