CTH - 480/S Constantly Lagging Photoshop

Postby lowjack » Sun 22. Sep 2019, 09:35

I recently downloaded photoshop on my new computer and my CTH-480/s has been giving me troubles that it never gave me on my former set up. Each time I drag a layer, hold shift to draw straight lines and Ctrl-Z, photoshop will freeze until I lift the pen away from the tablet. The computer will run photoshop smoothly with anything else but as soon as I use the pad to do those actions, it takes a while to process them. I've tried minimising file size and reinstalling the drivers but it still remains laggy. I've even used my friend's newer version wacom and it proceeds with the same issues. I use an msi ps42 and the correct version of windows photoshop.

Really hoping somebody has a solution.

I presume you have the latest Wacom Driver 6.3.36-1 installed?! However, your description sounds more to a Photoshop settings issue than a tablet issue. Maybe you take a look here:


Hope it helps.
