Every time I try to change colors with the pop-up color panel, or change layer settings with that pop-up panel, etc, there is a 2 second lag before I can click anything in Photoshop.  I can move the cursor around just fine, but it won't click anything for 2 seconds.  The only happens with pop-up panels; and it appears to happen with any pop-up panel.  I'm running Photoshop 21.1.2 on MacOS Mojave.

I've made sure Photoshop is listed in my MacOS accessibility settings and that my performance is optimized.  This issue just started in the last 1-3 days.

Wacom tablet? Mouse or trackpad?

Hi, Jeffry.  I use both.  I have a Wacom Cintiq and my mouse.  This problem occurs for both the Wacom stylus and the mouse.

PROBLEM SOLVED.  I reset my preferences in settings and restarted Photoshop.  It's now working properly.
