    Conflict between Photoshop CS6 and Microsoft Word 2010


      The hand tool in Photoshop CS6 becomes VERY slow when I open a Word document (not other Microsoft programs). When closing the Word document the speed is back to normal

          How much memory (RAM) is it taking up when you open the word document? What are your system specs?

            Thanks for the chuckle.


            It has been ages since I've seen MS Word mentioned in these forums.


            We really need a lot more details before we can comment intelligently, particularly about total installed RAM, designated primary scratch volume, total available space in both the boot volume and the scratch volume, etc.




            Note that this is boilerplate text.

            If you give complete and detailed information about your setup and the issue at hand,

            such as your platform (Mac or Win),

            exact versions of your OS, of Photoshop (not just "CS6", but something like CS6v.13.0.6) and of Bridge,

            your settings in Photoshop > Preference > Performance

            the type of file you were working on,

            machine specs, such as total installed RAM, scratch file HDs, total available HD space, video card specs, including total VRAM installed,

            what troubleshooting steps you have taken so far,

            what error message(s) you receive,

            if having issues opening raw files also the exact camera make and model that generated them,

            if you're having printing issues, indicate the exact make and model of your printer, paper size, image dimensions in pixels (so many pixels wide by so many pixels high). if going through a RIP, specify that too.


            someone may be able to help you (not necessarily this poster).

            a screen shot of your settings or of the image could be very helpful too.
