Hi,
I'm an avid Lightroom user - have been for years. I now run Lightroom CC2015 on a Mac Pro (2015) with 32 Gb Ram and 1 Tb Flashdrive. I can see LR is much faster when I use the adjustment sliders in the Develop Module. A wonderful advancement. However; the Spot Edit Tool is INCREDIBLY slow and inaccurate. This oretty much kills all speed advances. I just sit and wait ‚ and then make the adjustment again, because the first time it put the spot in the wrong place, or made the selection poorly. Just wanted to let you know... any change would be greatly appreciated!

I am not seeing any performance degradation on my Spot Removal Tool but one trick you can use if you are constantly resetting the location of the Spot Removal source is to hold down your [CMD] while clicking and then drag to the spot you want to force Spot Removal to use. It would eliminate the need to let LR auto-select and you to override.
