1 second delay with the zoom tool, then it works smoothly

Whenever I zoom in or out with my stylus or mouse using the zoom tool, there's a 1 second delay before it starts working, then it works smoothly. Trying to get it to function smoothly.

 

I've tried changing a lot of options in preferences. Searched the forums and google quite a bit. Seems like such a small issue but it's jarring and zooming in and out is a pretty constant thing for digital painting so it gets a bit annoying.

Didn't know about this. It's definitely a cool feature, but I still need to zoom to fixed locations and do so often. H press and hold is a quick way to get a view of the whole image and quickly return to where you were. Using this would definitely reduce how much I have to deal with the zoom delay, but it can't replace it entirely.

Which Operating system and version and which Photoshop version?  I would think a Painter would use a Brush tool and the Hand toggle H press and hold...

I'm on 10 now and 21.2 no problem there.  I would think the H press and hold would bet better for painters then switching to the zoom tool.

same problem here but it only happens sometimes and might have to do with loading alot of giant documents for me (15x4GB docs at the same time etc). restarting whole photoshop then fixes it (but opening my docs takes like 10minutes so cant really pinpoint the problem as its also random and usually doesnt happen on the next try or even for several more days)

 

so it might have to do with having giant files open or with alot of scratch space being used, (lot of free gpu mem at that point still tho)  but its not a way to reproduce the problem, its completely random.

 

tried lot of stuff when it happens, like turning tablet off, restarting wacom driver, restarting gpu driver, sleep/wakeup pc, restart mouse driver, its not caused by thirdparty apps, tried closing all unrelated apps and processes, no autohotkey, no lazynezumi or ps plugins,  the 0.3-1second lag before the scrubzoom happens with both wacom pen and mouse. the lag only happens with zoom tool, everything else works fine, pan, brushes, selections, moving, rotation.  the delay it happens with z+shift+lbutton drag (the jaggy scrub zoom) too.  i guess it has to do with photoshops gpu caching the scrubzoom action, i just cant really reproduce it as its random and also only happens if i open many giant docs which takes several minutes

 
PS 21.2.3 (it used to happen with previous versions too),  win10 64
Asus P9X79, i7-3930K, 64ram, ati HD7950 Flex 3gb (11196-17-40G)
