ELEMENTS - Very slow performance on MacOS

I am running PSE on an iMac with lots of RAM and a fast processor. I bought the fastest, biggest Mac available specifically so I could run PSE. Now, I find that no matter what I do, I get the "wheel of death" constantly when I try to edit a photo.

I read on the internet that some preferences affect the performance, and I tried changing them. I gave PSE more memory to use and reduced the number of history steps. That didn't help.

Any suggestions how to get decent performance?

I have the same problem. Which preferences did you change? And how did you give more memory to PSE?
