    Question Mac and Adobe CS5 Text Tool

    I'm new here. Anyone having problems with the Text Tool in Adobe Photoshop? Mine is EXTREMELY SLOW. Anybody have a solution to this?

    A bit more information maybe?

    - hardware configuration
    - is it slow when it's loading?
    - is it slow when you are typing?
    - is is slow when you are changing to a different font?

    All Macs I'm using my CS5 on (early 2008 iMac, late 2007 MBP and mid 2011 iMac) work fine - no issues with the text tool at all.

    It only runs slowly when I double click to select the font to select it or try to change the font.

    Still: hardware configuration would be helpful including what means "slow". Spinning beachball? Have you checked if you have free RAM available when Photoshop is running?

    Processor Speed: 2.7 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 4

    L3 Cache: 6 MB

    This is really getting frustrating. I've worked on PC and Mac for years. I've recently made the transition to Mac completely. I'd like to think I did the right thing. I'm running Lion and Adobe CS5. Dreamweaver keeps resorting to a spinning ball and I can't even open anything. Photoshop gives me errors, takes forever to edit fonts, and gives me an initializing font window that takes a good 30 seconds before I can open anything. I'm only running one program at a time and have plenty of free ram. Any thoughts? I'm missing my custom built PC.
