Photoshop elements 18 continually hangs on my Apple Mac

The programme just freezes and I have to force quit and restart but problem (randomly) reoccurs and seems to be increasing in frequency.
Restarting the Mac doesn't help

In general, mac and adobe don't play well together.   Have had same problem for awhile.  Here is what I found to be where the problems occurs and how to resolve.   Happens when both organizer and editor or premier are open together.   So ... if you have organizer open and editor open, close one of the other.  Either close organizer after moving to editor or if saving after editing, close the editor and keep organizer.   Adobe will not address the issue.

Hi Dale. Thanks for the reply. It maybe when the editor and organiser are open together, I will investigate further. I am not impressed if Adobe will not address the issue!

It may be a coincidence but if I start the elements editor then go to the organiser via the button at the bottom of the editor either than directly into the organiser the problem with the MAC hanging seems to have gone away - so far!
