I'm running an i7 with 24 gigs of RAM. 2018 ran acceptably fast. 2019 is unusable.

By the way, I was using Mojave with Photoshop CC 2018 and everything worked fine.

In my case every menu option in editor results in beachball action, sometimes just moving the cursor causes beachball to appear and feels like seconds to go away ...latest Mojave, 32 gb ram...previous version 18 worked like a champ

Unless one disables rulers, the erase and paint cursors become spinning wheels; most other functions are OK for me  in 10.14.1.   Mac is from last year, Adobe and Apple were each saying it was the others fault, I gave up and got a new machine to go with the new Photoshop.  Meanwhile, PS 2018 let me move the center spot for rotate layer, 2019 does not, which is inconvenient.  I do some work in 2018 and then switch to 2019.  Also, 2019 doesn't always remember that I want to export as JPG not GIF.  Sometimes it does....

I moved my preferences file so it would create a new one. That seemed to speed things up. As for the center spot for the transform tool, it’s off by default, but it can be turned on by clicking a small box on the toolbar. I have the same problem with exporting. It often doesn’t remember my preference.
