Photoshop 2018 full of bugs...

Downloaded PS 2018 and was instantly struck with bugs.  Shortcut keys only seem to work about a third of the time.  This affects everything across the board including zooming, saving, undoing, etc. The shortcut key for 'fill foreground' requires users to double tap the delete key in order for it to work.  

Things have slowed down as well.  The healing brush performs at about half the speed of PS 2017.

Adobe should be offering a way for users to downgrade back to 2017 based on everything I've experienced so far.  Note that I work professionally with PS, often spending 8hrs or more a day retouching and compositing.  These glitches and slow-downs add up to significant amounts of time and annoyances.  I'm curious to know how these bugs made it through Adobe's beta program.

Until these glitches / bugs are resolved I strongly recommend holding off on updating to Photoshop 2018.

Re: Downgrading - Look up the section "Install previous versions of apps" in here:

I've moved back to the 2017 version.  In my opinion PS 2018 can't be used at a professional level until Adobe has sorted out all of these bugs.  Frankly, I can't believe this version made it past the beta trials.

It's totally unusable with the amount of bugs I've encountered. Considering the price we all pay, this is unacceptable.

Yeah. This is the buggiest release of photoshop I've seen in the last 10 years. Bad lag.  Selections working in conjuction with fills, brushes are behaving randomly. Like it's straight busted. :/

I've had all sorts. Weird image issues where composite images appear on editing, that only disappear when zooming out. Create a new document takes ages, all windows show the same image, marquee tool doesn't show all edges of the selection. Yet we get lots of additional 'features' that I don't want, need or use (3D for instance, if I want to create something in 3D guess what? I use a 3D program for that!!).

I rolled way back to a version that is semi stable. But previous comments are spot-on, for the price we pay, it's currently a joke. How about not adding new stuff no-one wants and concentrate on getting the core features to work. I've used Photoshop since the 90's, this is hands down the worst release ever.
