okay, so ive been experiencing this weird lag problem in cs6 lately. it pops up from time to time. every thing lags, even with small picture sizes like 1000x1000 px. the only thing that doesnt lag is pressing (this is on mac) cmd + z, wich undo, and then redo every time you press it. mac users should know unles youve changed the shortcuts. pressing cmd + alt + z, (undoing multiple times if im not mistaken) does lag though. please help me im going insane!
should i change to cs5? is cs5 better for painting? ive always wondered. i did exactly "pay" for cs6, so im thinking about changing.
So you paid for CS6? Damn. I can imagine it would be annoying to change after paying. Although it depends if you want to stick to your guns and use CS6, or have less lag. Have you tried allocating more memory yet? If that doesn't work, it might be best to change. I use cs5 and I find there are lots more resources for it than any other version. People will probably start using cs6 when computers get faster in general.
I switched back to CS5.5 and I must say it is running way more smoothly than CS6. I've had lag issues related to Wacom drivers, but unrelated to those problems - I do find CS5 to be better for now. Maybe a future update will fix CS6, we'll see.
