Last saturday I already send a mail to Extensis about the problems I encountered using the new SF. This was about the problems in Photoshop:
With the plugin enabled Photoshop takes 1 minute and 50 seconds to launch and I get a message that hardware acceleration was disabled. Photoshop is slow…
With the plugin disabled Photoshop takes exactly 7 seconds to launch and HW accelereation (gpu Geforce GTX 970) is enabled hence Photoshop is a lot faster.
In the meantime I tried some things. I manualy installed the PS CC 2014 plugin in the PS CC 2015 plugin folder and this works mostly as expected (auto font activation). A work around for me for now. Photoshop is fast.
In Indesign I have problems with larger files like a magazine. Everytime I change something, a suitcase window pops up and disappears again. Very irritating. Also is the plugin slowing Indesign down a lot. Removing the plugin or disabling “Font Sense support” and “Pick the best match when original is missing” speeds things up a lot. This phenomen is not happening with small files like flyers or posters.
In Illustrator I experienced problems with a large DIN A3 infographics (about 100 MB) containing quite a lot of text. Illustrator crashed on this file with the SF plugin enabled. With the plugin disabled I could open the file in no time and Illustrator is responsive and fast as to be expected.
I get the impression that this version of SF for WIndows is released under too much pressure. It is not working well at all.
My system is fresh installed Windows 10 with Adobe CC 2015.
