I just want to check in, if there's other users who experience a problem with panning the image, without having "flick panning" enabled in the preferences.
In my case the canvas basically refreshes only after I have stopped my panning motion, so that there's no smooth movement during panning, only the state before panning and the state after panning. Only if I scroll REALLY slowly - like snail speed - I see the canvas moving along. As soon as I accelerate to a normal panning speed, the above behavior goes into effect.
I first thought that this might be a graphics card driver issue but then I noticed that when I turn on "flick panning" in the preferences, suddently panning is performed smoothly (but with the annoying floaty overshooting motion of flick panning, that I'd like to avoid).
Can anyone confirm?
Panning is much smoother and more responsive with "flick panning enabled". Perhaps its done via GPU when enabled. And is less responsive and jummpy when not enabled where all is done using your processor.
If you do not release the mouse button quickly there is no costing. Panning is resposive and where you want the image no costing.
The panning behavior without "flick panning" being enabled was just fine before the latest update. It was smooth and responsive but just without the gimmicky floating of the canvas that "flick panning" introduces.
I've been noticing the same behavior since the 21.1.0 update. Panning is jittery and laggy. Enabling "flick panning" definitely makes it smoother but I'm not a fan of the flick panning feature.
Glad to hear that I'm not the only one having that problem!
I use and like Flick Panning, but in the latest update even that has gotten uncomfortably jittery when it wasn't before. I have my GPU features enabled and didn't have a problem with this in the previous version (using an RTX2080).
I regret updating to Photoshop20 and unistalling 19, as that was much more stable (I've had a couple other issues, some of which have been resolved after a while, but not all).
I dislike that adobe won't let me download 19 again...
Many have reinstalled 21.0.3 there are to many issued in 21.1.0
Same issue here, panning is really choppy and performs horribly when flick panning is off. When turning flick panning is on, it returns to the normal smooth operation its supposed to have but adds the extra acceleration at the end which I don't want.
I have a nvidia 1080 ti
Ok, so I installed the new Photoshop version today (22.0.0) and the choppy panning is still an issue. It still can be resolved by activating flick panning but I the slippery feeling of flick panning and I just want to smoothly pan my canvas. Come on, is it that hard?
I tried everything that was written in these and other similar posts - nothing helped.
I accidentally found a solution. I checked the box to Scroll All Windows in the Hand Tool settings.
Now everything is smooth. It also helps a little to lower the mouse polling rate (I had 1000)
