I'm running PS CC2019 (v20.0.1) on an iMac with Mojave and am having no end of grief with the busy cursor and cursor lag when trying to paint on a .PSB (not "D" but it too has issues) graphics. I see there is a workaround posted until this gets fixed by Adobe (https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-and-macosmojave.html). I've avoided putting it in until now, but this issue is basically preventing me from getting my work done so now I have no choice. My question is though, the workaround is entering a line of code in Terminal which (I'm guessing - they don't tell you exactly) invokes a legacy brush methodology by the program. As you can't go back in and remove this code via Terminal (that I know of), what happens when Adobe does patch this? Does the patch also remove that command? If not, then the patch won't be of any use to those of us who have written it in because the line of code will always call on the legacy brush process. I don't want to do anything that will permanently prevent updates to this working.

Secondly, any idea as to how far away Adobe is to getting this fixed? If I don't have to install this workaround, I'd rather not.

Thanks much, appreciate the advice/help.

A more permanent fix is coming soon. You won't have to change anything with regards to the command line for the update (whether you applied it or not) for the update to correct the problem.
