When I start up Photoshop and switch to another application it automatically switches back to Photoshop after a few seconds. I can switch away again but it continues to put Photoshop on the foreground multiple times which forces me to just sit and wait until it is fully loaded.
It's incredibly annoying in a professional workspace while trying to work efficiently. I just want to start up Photoshop so it can finish loading in the background while I continue typing an email or reading a paper.
This was introduced during the CC 2017 update, before that I've never had this problem and I've been using Photoshop since 2003.
Another thing is the incredibly slow "new document" window but I already managed to turn that off. With the new window it's impossible to just "Ctrl+N -> Enter -> Ctrl+V", because you'll get stuck while the window loads and it won't register the Enter and Ctrl+V.
All in all, a pretty frustrating update. Adobe, when you invent new things make sure it doesn't impair the workflow professionals have had for over a decade. Especially something as essential as creating a new document.
