thank you for this. I'm sorry for my late reply. I left to go fight with it and didn't come back. I'm not a regular and forgot. I don't want to revert to an old probram. I like the new features Photoshop rolls out, but I hatre these crazy bew default iinterfaces like artboards. I can't delete them, can't ungroup them. Nlow all of my fonts are messed up. Trying to use a Google font, Montserrat and it's all wrong. For one font choice, it gives me thei choice of 3 different versions of it. I don't mean bold and italics, but Latin, etc etc. It's driving me nuts! I do what I do in PS and I don't do much more and i feel like every time I open it up after an update, I'm wasting tons of time re-learning. So annoying.
You're not alone. Photoshop has been absolute cr*p i n the last year. My productivity has sunk to an all time low. Changing preferences has only temporarily fixed the issue, after a few weeks it's back to lagging for me.
I have been spending more time on support than actual work in recent months and I keep asking myself each month what I'm paying for when it doesn't actually work properly. It's no longer becoming tenable nor is it worth the extortionate price tag and so I'm gradually making the switch to Sketch because not only is it cheaper but it works.
Good luck and I hope you can find a reasonable replacement. Adobe products are starting to be a total let down for me.
It is horrible. How about drop Photoshop and bring back Fireworks. Fireworks was working fine for me until I updated to beta Mac OS 10.13. The update to Mac OS made the color palettes in Fireworks unusable.
I could create editable shapes and paths to convert to shapes in seconds in Fireworks. The same tasks tasks requires Illustrator, Photoshop and 10-20 minutes or more depending on difficulty.
Thank god you can back date - because I agree with Trish - these updates are ruining professional lives. It's like you're complteley clueless. You're changing things that don't need changing - it's like you're dumbing it down.
Are you trying to make photoshop a piece of ****?
Is this some kind of weird corporate agenda you have - piss off all the professionals?
I'm flabbergasted to be honest - definitely turning auto update off, and reverting.
Really pissed off right now I even have to think about this.
SO PISSED OFF (yes I really want you to get the point)
I hope they get the message. Stop changing the GUI/interface!
