When Photoshop 2021 (with latest updates) launches in osx BigSur 11.4 the pointer becomes the spinning wheel and the application stop to respond. The only option is to kill it.
I'm not able to do anything before the block (no preferences, nor open files, etc).
I already tried to uninstall and re-install without luch.
What can I do? Photoshop is totally unusable.
I tried to download the demo of Illustrator and it works without problems
Try trashing your Photoshop preferences.
Navigate to Photoshop's Preferences folder:
macOS: Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings
The user Library folder is hidden by default on macOS. To access files in the hidden user Library folder, see How to access hidden user library files.
Drag the entire Adobe Photoshop [Version] Settings folder to the desktop or somewhere safe for a back-up of your settings
Thank you for your answer, I tried but without luck.
After the first startup the settings folder comes back but the problem persists: spinning and blocked photoshop
Any other idea? Thank you
Try logging into another account (you may need to make one): does it still crash?
If you boot into Safe mode (hold down Shift Key at boot): does it still crash?
Have you tried running a free utility like Onyx to see if that stops the crashing?
I had to revert to 22.3.1 version to be able to use it.
Honestly I think it's not acceptable to have this kind of problems on "stable" releases.
I uninstalled everything, deleted my preferences, etc .. and it was not fixed.
I presume the latest version is not compatible with osx.
Now I "solved", but I hope Adobe will fix it asap.
By the way, thanks for you very much for your help!
Did you try the specific suggested steps presented or you just rolled back?
