Adobe Photoshop 2019 v20.0.1 running very poorly  
I am running macOS High Sierra 
Imac 5k 27 inch icore7 
32gb ram 
And radeon r9 m295x 4096 mb ram 
internal ssd 1tb 

Photoshop 2019 runs very slow .
Problems with blur sliders infact most sliders go slow. 
Seems the longer i use it the slower it gets opening files using the brush slows down overall not good .
Is there any hope of bug fixes ?
Is there anything i can do to get it to run better ? 
I pay for the whole suit and rely on this for my work and time is money !!!
I have gone back to photoshop 2018 runs much better twice as quick i do have problems with the sliders moving slowly but not as bad as 2019 !

Hi Edwin,

Have you tried restoring your preferences?

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply.
