Photoshop CS6 Beta is soo slow in comparison to Photoshop CS5 when moving lots of vector layers. Check the videoa below please:
- GPU Settings Enabled in both
- GeForce GTX 560, latest drivers
- i7 3,4 GHz, 16GB RAM
Why CS6 is so slow in this situation?
EDIT: I found the Problem comes form the Layer Palete. Take a look how changing the tabs form Layers to Channels affect the moving performance : http://screencast.com/t/Gi01o1GzFPzJ
This have to be fixed, as in more complex files this will be huge problem..
Hello, I'm trying to reproduce it on my Mac, with a GeForce 9400, but can't so far...
Is the text vectorized, or are they still a text layer?
Is there anything peculiar on this file, does it occur on every size of file?
Nothing peculiar at all. Normal text laters.
Each field have subgroups with info - http://screencast.com/t/ykon4QwdBxC Overall lots of layers there, but in CS5 no problem to move them.
Still can't understand why I can move all of these better when layer palete is not displayed.
Please test it on CS5 (you will notice how smooth it is) and CS6 on both try to switch between layers palete and channels palete and try to move to see the difference. Move whole group named "Form",
Please let me know if I can help with something else to define the problem.
/I'm using Windows 7 x64, Photoshop CS6 beta x64/

Simeon, good find, I see the same behavior here, I wonder if it is because of the guides, but even with them, the layer panel should not have an influence.
Chris, Patty Jeff and Pete have also received a link to this thread.
Thanks for finding the issue, it sounds like you've uncovered something legitimate here.
By giving the files to Chris they are in the most capable hands. I'm sure as soon as he has something he'll let you know. Hang in there!
We are now able to reproduce this issue on both platforms.
The suggested workaround for this issue is to do the following:
1. Go the Layers Palette fly-out menu and select Panel Options...
2. Set Thumbnails to "None"
This should mitigate the performance issues you're seeing for now.
A few details: it has nothing to do with vector shapes or smart objects, just the number of layers in the document and the layer groups.
The performance was similar in CS5 and CS4. The performance can be worse if you have layers set to show layer bounds in the thumbnail instead of the entire document.
We're still working to understand the root cause and find a proper fix.
