Still having issues with the spinning cursor while using any brush or eraser, with Photoshop CC 2019. Mojave and Photoshop are fully up to date, and I have even tried the work around from CC 2018

Hi Taurren,

When you say the workaround, are you referring to this? 

After applying the 20.0.1 update, you will need to do the following for macOS 10.14.1:

Run the following command from the Terminal:
defaults write -g PhotoshopForceLegacyPaintMode -bool Yes
Then you have to enable Photoshop in System Preferences > Security > Accessibility

If you update to 20.0.3, that should fix the spinning cursor on Mojave without using the terminal command.
