Selecting patch tool (any selection) is back to normal, selections are made in an instant.
But when I drag the patch tool and let go, there's a bit of delay.
Things work fine with patch tool, IF I turn off the GPU support despite the choppy graphics when zooming in/out, loading liquify, and whatnot.
liquify load mouse drag lag is somewhat sporatic but it's more often than I'd like (say, 9 out of 10)
I can't comfirm if the GPU support is culprit or part of the problem here since a photo loads in a sequnced tile from top-left to bottom-right without GPU support and that I have to wait for liquify to finish loading a photo.
but I think there's a strong correlation on how GPU support is affecting (or not affecting) since the duration of mouse drag lag is about the same time it takes a photo to load on liquify window without GPU support.
if I resize the photo enough there's no drag lag whatsoever.
I've reset preferences numerous times, tried every possible combinations on GPU support + rossetta2, and I'm all out of ideas.
I have a late 2013 15" MBPr with PS v21.2.2 (which I found to be functioning perfectly without any hiccups and never bothered to upgrade since), copied the app, ran it on my M1 Mac mini, found out to be running just fine on M1 as well on both aforementioned issues, albeit the fact that it's not native M1 support.
We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop 22.5.1 on your M1 Mac. Please try enabling the option to Deactivate Native Canvas in Photoshop by going to Preferences, then Technology Previews. Once done, quit & relaunch Photoshop to check if that helps.
If the issue persists, you can try to reset the preferences of Photoshop using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2Qzc0K3
