I have Elements Version: 20.0 (20211214.Git.dot.221c6b7) x64 with OSX Monteray 12.1 operating System (Mac OS 10.16.0) all working on a brand new Mac mini (M1, 2020) 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD. My issue is that Elements freezes doing the simplest of tasks like adjusting Shadows/Highlights. The dialogue box just sits there when any of the sliders are moved with the rainbow wheel turning forever. When I launch Force Quit it doesn't show the app as not responding (see screenshot). After leaving it for 2 hours on one occasion I eventually gave up & did a Force Quit. In Preferences, I have tried adjusting the available RAM from 50%-90% and switching off the Graphics Processor all to no avail. Any ideas before I revert to the ultra stable Version 18.0 on my Late 2012 imac 27?
