Hello. I had been drawing all day using my wacom tablet on my macbook pro. It was working fine. Then suddenly photoshop became very laggy. I quit and reopened but still the same issue. I restarted my computer but still same issue. I thought it was my wacom so I used an XP-Pen tablet next, but still same issue. Drawing is not an issue on other applications e.g. Microsoft Word, so it must be an issue with Photoshop. Not sure how this happened, as mentioned it was working fine and then suddenly it was not. Please help!

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble while using your drawing tablet in Photoshop. Would you mind sharing the version of Photoshop you're using along with your computers macOS version? Have you tried re-installing the tablet drivers to check if that helps? If not, please try that & let us know if it makes a difference.

 

You can try optmiziing the Preferences of Photoshop using the steps suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/optimize-photoshop-cc-performance.html

 

If the issue persists, you can try to reset the preferences of Photoshop manually using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2Qzc0K3

Please backup your settings prior to resetting the preferences. You can check: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG
