Photoshop is buggy in OS X yosemite

When i draw with the brush and then press E to switch to the eraser, it doesn't work, and I need to draw again and press E again for it to work. sometimes I need to press it 8 times, other times it doesn't work at all. Can this be fixed? step backwards also has the same issue

Which version of Photoshop are you using?
And have you told Apple about these bugs so they can get information to fix the problems introduced in MacOS 10.10?

Photoshop CC newest update.

Lag issue seems to be FileVault, encrypting all my files.

However the brush switching hotkeys was there before i upgraded to yosemite. It's a photoshop bug

Photoshop CC (version 14.2) or CC 2014 (version 15.2)?

No, other people are not seeing such a problem using shortcuts (though some are reporting problems new to MacOS 10.10). It could be a third party plugin, an HTML panel, a utility program or another application on your system messing with the key events.

Update:

The problem was FileVault encrypting the files. The thing really slows the system.

Thanks for the help!

I have exactly the same problems. I deactivated Filevault, and it fixes the lags but the shortcuts still don't work. Please help.
