Photoshop CC 2015 is causing huge problems on my iMac 5K with El Capitan installed. It feels like most actions are running with 5-10 frames per secong. It's not smooth anymore. Really choppy when trying to move objects within a photoshop document.

Furthermore I need to hold my finger on the left mouse button and then release it after 1-2 seconds to get the optional tools like paint bucket, healing brush and stuff. Before having El Capitan installed it was just like this: hold the mouse button and then slide the tool you want to pick... Guess this a bug.
