Since release (21.2.1) and (21.2), I have noticed that when working with Artboards on Photoshop, while zooming in or out any area of the document, photoshop lags, and when typing on text layers, there is a delay to process the text change. Therefore, I have to get back to version (21.1.3) where this is fast and smooth. Please, any advise?

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop 21.2 & 21.2.1. Would you mind telling us which operating system are you working on?

 

Please try toggling the option for Legacy Compositing ON/OFF in Photoshop by going to the Preferences, then Performance. You can also try disabling the option to Use Graphics Processor. Once done, quit and relaunch Photoshop to check if that helps.

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj

To me, this feels like a recurring problem with artboards. Ever since the introduction, I keep trying out artboards and keep being disappointed with the performance. And it's not an hardware issue, I can assure you.

 

Best way to explain it: let's say I design something that's 1000 x 1000 pixels. I want four version of that, so I make 4 artboards of 1000 x 1000 pixels. By the time I'm working on the fourth artboard, even with only a few layers, basic functionality becomes unworkably slow. Zooming lags for half a second or more, dragging type fields takes seconds, moving objects around lags behind, etc, etc.

 

Now, if I were to create a 2000 x 2000 project, without using artboard, everything is fine. Everything is fine when it's 4000 x 4000, or 8000 x 8000. But I don't even want to try making 8 artboards of 1000 x 1000, let alone 64. And I honestly, honestly can't figure out what the issue is - apart from the constant thought of "If you can't make artboards work properly, why introduce the functionality at all".

 

Is this just me?

I have the same problem as described. Working with artboards has become almost impossible for me. Restarting the program does not help but when I restart the computer the problem seems to be gone for a short time. As soon as I open another document the problem is back. Disabling the graphics card has only made it worse. After disabling it, it was not possible to re-enable it and I had to reboot again. In the previous version everything was fine.
