Hi there,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop. Would you mind sharing the version of Photoshop you are using along with your computers operating system?

 

You can try optimizing the preferences for Photoshop using the steps suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/optimize-photoshop-cc-performance.html

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj

The very latest photoshop version, running on win10.
This is not a performance issue on my side, I have an extremly powerful machine running this stuff, yes, performance settings are set up right, yes I even reset photoshop entirely to test for potential corruptions.
This specific issue also seems to be building, as in, the more I try, the slower things get.

Gotta say, this is one of many, rather serious issues, which seem to be creeping into photoshop lately, starting around v20 or so, not a good experience at all. Please correct this, or lose a client.

First off: No argument with 

»not a good experience at all.«

A couple of the recent Photoshop updates apparently caused issues affecting quite a few Photoshop users indeed … 

 

But is typing

»The very latest photoshop version«

really more effective than 

»Photoshop 21.2.1«

Yes, because it prevents me from having to look up the exact version, knowing I updated to the latest.

Which make user have to look at what day you posted than find out what version was the latest  on that date.  Time marches on thanks a lot.  If you want help you should post pertinent information.

Or perhaps don't be passive aggressive towards someone posting issues instead of remaining quiet as they leave for better pastures.
If you want something, you can simply ask in a normal manner.

Throwing around salt will simply make everybody salty.
The software is seriously broken and needs to get fixed, let's focus on that I say.

What I found so far is that using the marquee selection tool with the grid active, will makes things slow down more and more and more very quickly.

Yes there is a performance issue when the gird is displayed.  Other have also reported this.  The ball is in Adobe court all we can do here is hope that Adobe will address this issue soon and help each other out. Tell users to use Ctrl+' is the shortcut to toggle the grid.  Please follow the guide lines.

It's also been affecting me. I hope the issue would be resolved with an update as I always stay up to date with CC, but I feel like it only got worse.

Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue?
