Have you gone to the Wacom site to see if it's compatible with Yosemite?? I'm always leery of upgrading an OS right away when I rely on other softwares on a daily basis.
Actually it's compatible. Everything is ok, just this little problem but horrible problem.
I just wrote on the Wacom forum.
I'll keep in touch if I fixe it !
If anybody have the same problem or solution... please tell us.
Odd you'd have the problem if it's "compatible"! Hope you find others with similar issues so you can find help!
Same problem here. I just installed Yosemite on my MacBook Pro and now my Intuos3 is lagging horribly.
Some users have reported that turning off FileVault solves the lag/slowness problem.
Others have indicated that using a mouse is fine, and the lag only occurs with trackpads and tablets.
Also, please be sure to let Apple know about these issues in MacOS 10.10, so they can get the information they need to fix the bugs introduced in MacOS 10.10.
Guys fixed the problem on wacom forum reinstalling this old version of Intuos driver :
DRIVER 6.38-2 RC FOR MAC OS X 10.9, MAC OS X 10.8 AND 10.7 (INTEL)
I'm installing... hope it will works !
I'm having the same problem and the reinstall didn't work for me. If I use a brush the brush freezes and can't be resized until I click outside of the document. This doesn't happen with the mouse. I have tried both the new and the old update as well. No luck.
The reinstall doesn't fixed my problem ! Grrr
Actually, I tried to use as quickly as my table the brush with my mouse... AND SAME PROBLEM !
So actually, the problem is not from the Tablet driver but from Photoshop CC !
So please ADOBE, Fixe it !! My iMac have 32Go, it's not normal to get so lag bug like that !!
And not normal when you pay so much for a software by month !
There was no problem in previous versions of MacOS, and using the mouse works fine for most people -- all indications are that this is just a bug in MacOS 10.10.
Has anyone had any more luck with this? Every time I use the click lasso tool in photoshop there is a lag. very frustrating!!!

I start having input lag on photoshop cc 2014 after update to yosemite. I tried to revert the driver, reinstall everything, change settings on my wacom and photoshop with no effect. The only thing that worked was resetting my photoshop preferences (hold cmd+option+shift while opening ps).
I have a intuos 4, but it might work for cintiq too. hope it helps

Resetting the options solved the problem for me as well, thanks!
Ok the problem seems to be fixed for me. Here what I did:
Before, I was running Yosemite 10.10 on an iMac i7
I had the latest driver from Wacom (I tried a couple of older drivers, to no avail)
I'm running PS CS6, with all update
I'm using a Wacom Intuos 5 medium tablet
I was getting super bad lag while using the brush and other tools. Let's say I'd open an image to edit. After selecting the keyboard shortcut for my brush, I'd make one pass with the brush on the image. The brush stroke would be there, but it wouldn't show up in the history palette. Only after making another brush stroke would the previous action be recorded in the history palette. I was lagging real bad. In between brush strokes I wouldn't be able to change tools or even change the size of my brush. Nothing worked. I'd have to click off the image to regain control, or click the trackpad to regain control. BTW, the trackpad worked perfectly. NO lag for anything in PS. The polygonal lasso tool, one of my favorite selection tools, was basically unusable with the lag. I'd have to click several times before it would catch up and then sometime it would just randomly close the selection. So that was useless.
Ok, so that's what was happening to me. My tablet was basically useless. It took triple the time to work with it.
All I did was update Yosemite to 10.10.1 and the tablet now works PERFECTLY in photoshop cs6 for me. I'm not sure you'll get the same results but it worked for my computer. I really didn't think it would work so I was pleasantly surprised when it did.
I had tried installing older wacom drivers. Didn't work.
I tried reinstalling PS CS6 in a new user profile on my Mac. Didn't work.
This describes my problem perfectly. I'm already on 10.10 so there's no update. Resetting photoshop preferences seems to work!!
After trying it out for a while, the brush stroke lag seems to be gone. However, the 'brush tool' that registers in history is not instant, and I can't switch using keyboard shortcuts to other tools.
I forgot to mention that I'm also running this plugin. It may be making the difference because my tablet works like normal with no lag.
Does it make a difference if I am using CS6 Extended? I think I'll try it regardless.
It's a hassle having to constantly click somewhere else so that PS will get up to date. Then it's a cycle all over again when I use the brush tool.
I THINK IT WORKS!!
Same thing here since Yosemited, Ps CC brush tool freezes when working wt Wacom Intuos tablet. But the problem seems to be wt Photoshop since the tablet works fine in other apps even during these sad sad sad sad events.
I have the same problem with laggy brush, when using wacom tablet but everything what u have guys wrote above I've tested and didn't resolved my problem.
DISABLE or TURN OFF THE RULERS in PHOTOSHOP CC
Maybe this is stupid but after u turning off the rulers in Photoshop CC your lag disappear, however photoshop speed up in every tasks, this is really wired
I cant believe that worked!
I've had this problem for months.

I'm on a 27" imac with Wacom Intuos 4. Same problem with lag of certain tools (most noticeably with the healing brush). It was driving me crazy. I tried everything mentioned in this thread with no luck. I finally discovered the solution (for me). I hope this helps those like me who were looking for a complex solution before considering the simplest...I went into the Wacom preferences and changed the Tip Double Click Distance from 'Large' to 'Off.' Problem SOLVED. Now, no lag. Cheers!
Tried everything suggested, but turning rulers off eventually solved it for me in PS6EX.
I tried your suggestion and it did NOT work for me. Bummer. I have the same issue as others here. I have a loaded 2013 27" Mac with all the bells and whistles and haven't had a problem until Yosemite. I upgraded drivers. Shut off pen distance as you stated and I still have the same problem. Anyone else have any fix?
The "Ruler" thing didn't work for me. I never had the rulers on and I get all of the lag, brush resizing issues. Damn. Anyone have anything else to suggest?
Install the latest driver of Wacom Tablet, next in Photoshop restore all settingś, turn on the ruler, try to sketch if u get a lag, turn off the ruler and test again.
Right on - Turning OFF rulers fixed the lag!
I am on a 2014 retina iMac i7 with 1TB SSD 32GB ram, OSX10.10.1 and latest Wacom drivers but the lag on my brushes was intolerable. Even with the simplest round brush Photoshop took about half a second to register my pen stroke. I installed a trial of Sketchbook Pro to see if the problems was the tablet or system, but it worked fine, great brush response.
Now back in Photoshop and after turning off the rulers, brushes are fixed and working perfectly!!!!
seriously ADOBE - someone needs to look into this and fix the code!!
This fixed everything!!
We are still investigating why MacOS 10.10 causes a delay when rulers are enabled.
But this may be related to several other bugs introduced in MacOS 10.10 that Apple is still working on.
Hi Chris, Have you discovered any clues as to what causes the lag between yosemite + Cintiq+ Photoshop CC 2014? I can hardly draw on my cintiq.
If I use the pen and mouse on my Intuos tablet, I can use brushes with no problems on the cintiq. Any advice would be most hepful.
I've installed wacom drivers from nov 2014 because the jan 2015 drivers didn't help
Doesn't seem to be a ruler issue within photoshop
I've renamed my adobe photoshop prefs file
and running osx 10.10.2
I updated my MacBook Pro to Mavericks (10.9.5) and my Wacom Intuos4 had major issues in Photoshop CS6: spot healing brush lagging, brushes lagging, lasso selections closing early, photoshop totally freezing, screen flickering when scrolling with hand tool…totally unusable. I tried 3 different driver versions for the tablet…didn’t help. I tried resetting preferences in Photoshop…didn’t help. I was also using a MacBook Pro at the studio that had Yosemite installed with Photoshop CS6 and it had all the same problems. I finally found the White Window Workaround plugin and it fixed everything on both computers!!! You can find it here:
I am using OSX 10.10.2 with photoshop CC 2014 and intuos 4.
I had been experiencing similar problems described here and I found that the only way to make photoshop cc 2014 work as intended without lag is to go full screen mode without menus. i.e only canvas and press tab to hide all menus. Hopefully this will help adobe to narrow down what is the bug that continues to disrupt our workflow. This is just a temporary solution and really hope adobe can patch this to make it work out.
With that said, I still do experience my wacom suddenly stop working and have to unplug it and plug in again for it to continue working as per normal in photoshop cc 2014. But this could be another problem that maybe wacom should address.
After installing Yosemite, and struggling with the lag for two weeks, I spent a week on every forum trying to figure out a solution, I then spoke with multiple customer service reps at adobe and wacom. According to an adobe rep, the wacom drivers are not yet fully comparable with yosemite but they hope to be soon. I finally unistalled yosemite and re-installed mavericks, the november 2014 wacom cintiq driver, and photoshop CC 2014 and now my machine is as good as new.
Nothing in this post worked for me but the white window plugin worked for me, thank you! If I can't use healing brush with a tablet, life would be disastrous!
thanks Man!!!!! Solved!!!
Haven't yet made it to the end of this thread, but I will contribute this: Everyday, whenever I restart PS2014, I have to go into the Library and delete those Photoshop preferences. This takes care of the lag for a while, but eventually, after a couple hours drawing, it slows down again and I must quit PS and do it again.
Ok, I've made it all the way through.
Will go and try a number of the recommendations on here- thanks in advance!
One thing I can say is that Wacom is convinced it's an Adobe/Apple problem, Apple is sure it's an Adobe/Wacom problem, and Adobe... well, you know the rest.
Looking forward to getting this solved!
Well, after all that, and going through all the responses here, it seems like it actually was an issue with Rulers! Ha! Just gotta keep the rulers off if you wanna do any drawing.
I hope this is fixed soon, as it's just nice to have those rulers always there, but at least there's a workaround.
I'll know by the end of day today whether that was truly it, but for now, after shutting down overnight, restarting and opening PS2014, it appears that all's well.
Yes, drawing the rulers is a known performance problem in MacOS 10.10.
Apple is aware of the OS bug and working on a solution.
