Photoshop CC Lag Problem with Black & White Adjustment Layer

Hi,

My Photoshop CC has lagging problems and I noticed it happens whenever I click on a Black & White Adjustment Layer. It's such a hassle when I'm working as it takes several seconds, causes disruption to my workflow, and minutes-w/c can add up to hours of delay! I use Photoshop on my commissions, personal projects, work.. and those hours are paid. I hope this can be resolved very soon.

Thanks, Vladimir.

I increased it to 2 and tried 3. The delay is just about 1-2 sec now on an empty canvas w/ 1 adj layer (longer delay with more layers), but there's certainly an improvement.

I still hope Adobe can do something about that particular adjustment layer. Compared to all other adj. layers it's the only one that has delay. I even considered not using it anymore and just use the Hue/Sat (Sat set to 0). However, they don't have the exact same results. It's when I tested that I discovered that even accessing a Snapshot of a 'state' or just a state using the B&W Adj. Layer in the History window would cause same delay.

I hope Adobe would address this particular problem soon.
