Photoshop CS6: Brush Lag - Yosemite

I'm using the newest Yosemite on iMac (2013, 32GB RAM, 2GB Graphics) including updates. Just did a fresh reinstall of CS6 Master Collection including updates.

There seems to continue to be a brush lag using Photoshop - but only when the rulers are turned on. When they are turned off, the lag continues.

Any word on updates or fixes for what seems to be a rather annoying issue?

Try restoring your preferences: http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/201...

If you do restore your prefs, please save a copy of your existing prefs in case they turn out to be the culprit. Having the bad prefs can sometimes help us track down the issue.

Make sure you have the WhiteWindowWorkaround plugin installed.
Make sure you have all the Photoshop CS6 updates installed.
Make sure you have all the Wacom driver updates installed.

And we are still working with Apple to resolve a number of issues introduced in MacOS 10.10.

Hello Jeffery and Chris,

I've done all suggested.

As far as preferences, would there be a need to restore them from a brand new install? The brush lag was the first thing I checked and it was present. I did restore them anyway with no results.

The only thing that seems to work at the moment is turning off the rulers while using the Brush Tool as well as Lasso/Selection Tool while using a Wacom Tablet. Very odd, indeed.

Reinstalling doesn't affect your preferences, unless you chose to delete them when uninstalling.

Yes, I deleted them as well as run the Cleaner application after Uninstall - with restarts of the computer in the interim. I downloaded a fresh copy of CS6 directly as well as updated everything immediately. WhiteWindow was already included in the update.

I've been using Photoshop and various operating systems since Photoshop 3 - not CS3...the 3rd version, way back. I've gotten accustomed to installing and re-installing techniques.

Thanks for the tips thus far, though.
