Since updating LR to 7.3.1 (Mac OS 10.11.6), I'm having several problems. When trying to use adjustment brush, I make a stroke, it sits there doing nothing, the rolling beachball appears & disappears a few times, & finally a small bit of the brush stroke appears — took about 70 seconds. I’ve restarted the app & the computer to no avail. I’ve gone back to 7.3 and now have the same problem with it. Help!

The issue probably has nothing to do with the Lr 7.3.1 update. This part of the Lightroom hasn't changed in Lr 7.3.1.

Several things to try:

1. Reset Lr preferences: press Shift+Option keys when launching Lr.
2. Try turn off the GPU acceleration: Lightroom>Preferences>Performance>Use Graphics Processor to see it helps.
