After the latest update, Photoshop CC 2017 doesnt work well anymore.

- it gets slow
- Changes are only visible after zoom in or zoom out into the image
- and the major issue is, that Photoshop is freezing if I select the Type Tool.

Photoshop run preaty well before I updated to the latest version. I tried to deinstall and reinstall ps again. It doesnt help. Even to install the prevous version doesnt help.

I spent alot of hours on the internet to find a solution. No way. I have tried everything. Nothing helps. I am so frustrated!

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.

Howdy Eduard,

It could be possible that your font cache was corrupted accidentally during the update.  I would recommend either a) (easy) trash your preferences or b) manually delete both of your font caches using the steps found here:  If I'm right, that should solve your issue.  Either way, let us know so we can either figure out the next step or confirm what the problem was.
