Photoshop Elements 14 is so often slow/unresponsive.

Elements 14 is very sluggish - tool responsiveness, clicking on a layer in the layers panel to activate it, and lots more.  I am using Version 14, Windows 10 and lots of RAM. I teach Elements 14 with Windows 8, sometimes having problems during demos.  Several students use 14 at home too, reporting the same problems.  Some switch back to a previous version for some edits - like Photomerge Panorama.

I am under the impression that Elements 14 was re-written from the ground up.  Anything like that tends to need lots of tweaks.  Is there any chance that Adobe would allow people with version 14 to have a free upgrade to version 15 when it comes out?  Or give us a fantastic update that makes up for months of frustrations? What a great good will gesture to faithful customers that would be!  So many people buy a new version every time it comes out, or every other year, expecting improvements, not so many negative issues....

You are exactly right! It is very sluggish and terrible when it comes to facial recognition. I was told they are working on a fix months ago, Still nothing! Very disappointing.
