Hello to everyone,

 

I have the same problem as described on this link and the same "solution" to move to layer "easily without delay" !

http://forums.adobe.com/message/4290563

 

the solution to remove these huge delays is:

 

http://forums.adobe.com/message/4290563

"1.  Go the Layers Palette fly-out menu and select Panel Options... "

"2.  Set Thumbnails to "None"

 

My computer setup:

 

Windows 7 x64 SP1

CPU Core i7 (@3.7 GHz)

NVIDIA GTX295 (latest drivers)

Total 12Gb RAM (8Gb for system + 4Gb for RAMDISK R:\)

C:\ = SSD

D:\ = Velociraptor 150Gb

E:\ = Velociraptor 300Gb

R:\ 4Gb (temp files for windows, user, winzip and more)

 

My tests with file 66.4 MB with much layer, text, group. Photoshop is already running and I use the menu "File / Open" :

 

IN CS5 (12.0.4) X64:

about 6.13 seconds

size of the temporary file on C:\ = 2951296 KB

 

Setup in photoshop:

10943 Mo memory seen

Percent of possible use memory 82% (8974 Mo)

 

 

IN CS6 X64:

about 137 seconds

size of the temporary file on C:\ = 20216832 KB

 

Setup in photoshop:

10991 Mo memory seen

Percent of possible use memory 82% (9012 Gb)

 

Sorry for my bad English, I do my best to explain the problem identified.

Steve

    Do those solutions work for you?

    Does changing the thumbnail size in layers panel have an effect on the performance?

     

    I'd start with doublechecking your video card driver is up to date. Even one version back can sometimes cause issues.

    Steve,

     

    Please go to performance preferences and check to see what the tile size is in both CS5 and CS6.  I suspect that in CS5 it is set to 128K and in CS6 it is set to 1024K.  Trying changing CS6 to 128K, quit and restart the app, and the re-open the file.  Does it open faster now?

     

    Thanks,

    Adam

    If I were you, I'd check the computer for any malicious malware you may have unknowingly installed at the same time you installed that pirated version of the Myriad Pro font you mentioned in your other thread.

     

    Such malicious malware can easily account for the performance issues you are observing.
