Photoshop 20.0.1 and 20 before that have been absolutely unusable on my installation Mac OSX 10.13.6 (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4095 MB)

Clicking on visibility icons in in the layers panel does nothing, using the pen tool rarely will plot a point, the eye dropper tool doesn't work the majority of the time and the canvas doesn't update until scroll at times.

I've tried with GPU accelleration on and off, both have issues. I've also tried completely uninstalling/reinstalling, clearing preferences, etc.

There are more issues I'm sure, but can't remember them all. At this point I'm better off work in Microsoft Paint inside a virtual machine.

Christian, I'm replying as a user, not a tech. I have been working with Photoshop for over a decade now, in a Windows environment. When I upgraded to the latest version I too have similar issues. I have posted details to the Photoshop Family page and received some advice, none of it worked. I was going to uninstall Photoshop and after reading your post, I'm just going to wait. I'm also am having problems with copy/paste, filters, drop down menus and sluggish. I can't work. You are not alone! Good Luck!
