Grid and Guides causing slowdown

Any time I turn on grids and create multiple guides (4 or more), my performance drops considerably. It didn't used to be this bad as I could have upwards of 20+ guides on a relatively low file (20MB) with little slowdown, but now I can barely use the guides for work.

I've gone through and upped my performance settings (pictured) and added a scratch disk but it hardly makes a difference. 

I've also followed a number of steps from this guide: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/optimize-photoshop-cc-performance.html

Which operating system?

How much free HD space do you have? 

And how much RAM are you allocating to Photoshop?

I am also running into this issue. I noticed I had a big slowdown after adding a guide layout. I tested this on a fresh 3840x2160 document to see how many guides it would take to show a noticeable slowdown and it was only 10. This was not an issue in the past.

Hi, just noticed the reply.

I'm using:

  • Windows 10
  • about 600GB out of 900GB
  • I'm allocating 85% from 16GB of RAM

 

I can get 3 guidelines out before severe slowdown

I am also having this issue. It wasn't a problem a few months ago. 

 

EDIT: I've installed the earliest version I could (20.0.10) and that is working now as a workaround.

Yes, this is definitely a new issue. Photoshop was rock solid until this issue popped up. I tried 21.2.2 where I noticed it, reverted to 21.2.1 and it's still there. This isn't a computer issue, it's a Photoshop issue and most likely tied to the guides since that's where the problem is most notieable.

 

Our computers are fine, I can edit 4k video and do effects......but photoshop guides kills my machine, lol.
