  • Updated 6 years ago
Just installed cs6, install went fine, no errors etc. opened a new document to change the background colour. I then minimized the window and then when I opened it again I noticed horrendous slideshow-esque animation on the window, brushes etc are the same, really laggy and framey, same goes for resizing the window.

When i close the open document all the lag goes away, I've tried changing a few of the performance settings all to no avail. Anyone have an idea of whats going on?

That sounds like it might be a video driver issue (slowing redraw).

Did you install the dot release for CS6?

What OS version are you using?

What GPU are you using? And have you updated the drivers from the GPU maker's website?

What do you mean by dot release? I'm using windows 7 ultimate x64 with a 8800gts, drivers are all up to date. I initially thought it might have been to do with the graphics acceleration, and even though there most definitely is an issue there, turning off opengl in the performance settings has no effect whatsoever. I'll also add that i'm running illustrator cs6 and have no issues at all.
