Takes 15+ seconds to render the text in a new or existing text layer in a new or existing document.

Running 10.11.4 El Capitan and CC15 2015.22.2 (2016 011 3.r.355 x64) and CS6 Extended 13.1.2 x64...

I had downloaded Compatibility Plug In and updated both CS6 and CC15, but none of these required a reboot. After rebooting, the problem is gone.

Sounds like there was something slowed down at a system level, which the reboot cleared up.

BTW - the compatibility plugins are not needed for current versions of Photoshop.
