Photoshop: Problem with Auto Correction and touch sensitivity

Among many other issues I've encountered since being forced off my CS3 to CC2018... 

Im an expert photoshop user with 20+ years experience... In regards to auto correction in all tools (level tool, curve, and any tool with an auto feature). Logic and past experience would dictate that upon "auto correction" the image should be balanced and upon re-auto leveling or curving no change should result. Not the case. The algorithm will continue to readjust the image infinitely producing diminishingly poor results. Further more suggesting that the initial "auto level" is not an accurate rendering... unrelated...

I randomly loose touch sensitivity. working fine and them boom, gone. the only way to restore it is to reset the program to defaults. so annoying. Had tech support on the phone 3 times with no resolution... STOP MESSING WITH PHOTOSHOP!!! this used to be a professionals tool, and now you're gearing it towards the consumer and screwing it up!!!! STOP!!!... Make a pro version. streamlined without the help tools, and intuitive tools and all the features the bog the program down. Lean and mean. think photoshop of 10 years ago... 

 Im running the latest version, on the newest Mac with the latest operating system...

I agree 100% It used to be a great product, now it's just a mess of bugs!!! They should stop adding features and start fixing bugs.

Last I looked there were over 400 bugs which is ridiculous.

Hi Brad, how are you applying your adjustments? are you using Adjustment Layers? I cannot replicate your issue with Adjustment layers.

When you say Touch Sensitivity, I'm not sure what you're referring to. Are you talking about pen pressure? or something with your track pad?

Brad, do you by chance have RightFont installed on your Mac?

Interesting point about the Auto functions. I never noticed that, but other than Auto Contrast where it looks at the blackest and whitest points, it kinda makes sense that some auto functions would reanalyze the image and redo the correction.
