hi.

 

After updating with the latest version

few days ago, (22.5.0)
when I use the pen tool and the Clone stamp tool, the feel of the use is somewhat heavy and slow.

 

Shall I re-install the latest version?

Or shall I downgrade the version of the software?

Hi, We're sorry about the trouble with the Pen tool & the Clone stamp tool in Photoshop 22.5. Would you mind telling us if the issue started right after the latest update? You can 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 manually using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2Qzc0K3...
