Yes, i think the problem is caused by putting the cs5 plugins into the photoshop cs6 plugins folder.
Remove those plugins and cs6 should work a whole lot better.
The reason you don't see any plugins in the plugins folder is that adobe moved all the plugins shipped with photoshop cs6 to the Required folder inside the Adobe Photoshop CS6.app
and the empty plugins folder you saw is for third party plugins like SuperBladePro.
I owe an apology to the previous responder Chris C, to this issue. I misread his solution thinking he meant I needed to delete ONLY the "additional" plugins like SBPro. Which I did. But rereading, I see he meant ALL the plugins I dragged from 5.5 because the 6 plugins folder was empty.
I thought it was corrupted in download. So if you guys get points for solutions, be sure Chris gets a few since I responded saying it did not work.
In fact, after removing the 5.5 plugins from 6, everything is working fine.
Plus I didn't know the 6 plugin folder was for the "after markets" like SBPro which is good to know.
Also thanks for the fairly quick response. I'm typically dubious about forums as troubleshooting solutions.
Kinda like sending a message in a bottle out to sea. Never know when it's coming back.
Sometimes issues are urgent. Your response team has encouraged me greatly :-)
But still bummed that Chats do not support CS6 however.
