Shape layers, and live shapes especially, cause freeze in Photoshop

Made a thread here but had no reply and then found out about this Get Satisfaction forum.

Whenever I click on a shape layer in the layers panel, Photoshop takes a few seconds to respond. This time seems excessive on Live shape layers, and I can see the Properties panel loading in slowly each time. This makes working in Photoshop a major pain.

Running Windows 7 and Photoshop 2015.5, and this issue was present in the previous version.


GeForce GTX 980 Ti

Intel Core i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00 GHz


Am I alone in this issue? I've had it on both my work PC and home PC. Both have a similar setup regarding graphics cards and processor.
