Not a Mac guy but the usual advice is to install programs from disk. Cloning and migration have added risks.
I can't install Creative Cloud programs from a disc, can I? I mean, they're all downloads. Maybe I could redownload them... It seems like there should be a preference file or something I could trash, though.
You could try resetting preferences by starting PS and immediately holding down Cmd + Option + Shift keys. You should get a reset window.
Some users get in trouble when files are moved from default settings after installation. Also, Bridge will not work if temp file is not on boot drive.
Don't know how the cloud works. Think it is installed on computer? If so if above does not work unistall and re-install might be next step.
You didn't move anything to another place because your SSD is limited in space, did you?
Nice - that reset did it! I thought you weren't a Mac guy - how did you know the key-combo for the reset? I didn't know about that - I'll have to remember it.
Photoshop loads like greased lightning on the SSD, as I was hoping.
Thanks for replying, Noel. I reset the preferences per Curt's suggestion, and that worked.
I made sure to prune my boot drive down to a manageable size so I could make a perfect clone onto the SSD and still have a lot of free space on it. Luckily I have three other HDDs to hold lots of stuff.
Great, sometime I hit it correctly.
