I am getting quite frankly sick and tired of Photoshop as it seems to cause more and more problems lately
The group of users that feel like you is growing. Perhaps when that group becomes huge Adobe will realize they have a problem.
-Crashing when trying to print.
No I've not had that happen, I assume when you said you have updated the drivers that includes print drivers. Do you get a crash message?
-Constantly crashing OpenCL driver
Does it crash randomly or when switching from Camera raw/Lightroom (or from and to the camera raw filter). If so try unchecking use graphics processor in Preferences Camera Raw.
You can disable Open CL in Preferences Performance
The problems that occur on both machines are:
I will make multiple copies of the said shape.
They will appear on the layers panel, however when I try to move the shape to it's location expecting other copies to be underneath, there is nothing there! Photoshop shows multiple copies of a layer however they are nowhere to be seen.
I have not experienced that. If you get a file where it is happening can you post a link?- I'd be happy to try it here to see if it may be something in the file
I really ask that myself everytime I update the program.
I was using CC 2015 up until yesterday, cause I just don't trust the updates.
Now today I jumped to CC 2018 because the new features are just too god. But it is filled with problems that CC 2015 didnt had anymore.
To pay monthly for a program that I can only update once every year (cause the new version is usually full of glitches) is pretty infuriating.
I don't have the problems you mentioned... I have other ones. :/
Most of them related to lags. Every element I try to move in my composition is "heavier" and non responsive. Specially compared to CC 2015.
Still waiting for a reply from adobe :/
Just a standard Windows application crash
It usually crashes on start if it's OpenCL related, or when trying to print.
I don't want to disable OpenCL, I didn't buy a computer that supports a feature, only not to use it. I can't imagine my life without smooth zoom and nice edges.
It's not a specific file. I can start from scratch on blank background and same will be happening without introducing any outside files. Just blank background and shapes.
I have also noticed general slowness in last few months. As you describe, very often when moving and transforming not necessarily a big object they do act like a much heavier one. Also found that Exporting to Web feature is dreadfully slow when dealing with larger res files. Community has been asking for years for option to disable the preview generation, which often is unnecessary and takes waaaaay longer than it should. Those requests and many others fall on deaf ears.
