Photoshop: Spinning rainbow - lag - performance sluggish

Toggling between running level adjustment and then switching to the action panel to run an action causes the rainbow to spin and I have to wait a few seconds before the action I've selected on the tab appears active and ready to run. This is on version 2020. I'm running Mojave on a macbook pro. To be waiting on photoshop to resolve itself with a spinning rainbow and slowing my workflow down is a big pain in the behind.

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info.Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the textin a reply.

Also, try going to Preferences > Performance... and check Legacy Compositing. Restart Photoshop. Are you still having issues?
