cs6, zoom and selection tools do not activate in time when switching between the two.

Have you installed all the updates?

Which OS version are you using?

How are you switching between the tools?

thanks for you reply Chris,

All updates are installed.

RetinaMBP/
OS.10.8.2/
i7/
8GB DDR3/

Using keyboard shortcuts.

to describe whats happening: I am using a Wacom intuos4.
Select tool is selected. I would be moving layers around in photoshop then I need to zoom out/in quickly and I would press Z and the zoom icon appears. but as soon as I start zooming or wanting to, it thinks a bit and then just switches back to the selection tool for no reason. Making me lock the layers position to avoid it happening again. and I use alot of layers.

Somehow every report we get about such delays involves a wacom tablet.
But we can't seem to reproduce it ourselves (and we have lots of wacom tablets in use).
