    I've recently upgraded my Mac to the Mojave release. I'm finding things that used to happen quickly are hesitant resulting in my workflow being hampered. In particular, images selected in Bridge and 'flagged' not being selected etc. Any one having similar issues?

    Did you just upgrade? The SpotLight index may be rebuilding still (it does not do this on all OS upgrades but it does happen). I have not noticed anything slower myself. I am in Lightroom most of the time and do not use Bridge. As a general suggestions, try the PS setting for using the Graphics Processor in Photoshop > Preferences > Performance try it off if on and on if off. You need to restart PS for it to take affect. Also go to System Preferences > Accessibility > Display > and uncheck “Reduce transparency” and “Reduce Motion”. This will speed up things overall.

    Thank you DonS, i'll try all this. Yes, I was still using El Capitan quite happily but was lured in by the 'sexy' new dark look...

    There's all sorts of random weirds across the Adobe suite in Mojave (I've not installed it on any money making machines yet, that'll be the x.2/x.3 release; but haven't noticed any issues on hardware that Apple said was incompatible apart from a transparency glitch); one thing that may help is changing the resolution mode for the application(s) to see if that improves the performance on the apps (though don't ask about the flagging issue as I don't use bridge either) and that's quit the application completely, go in to the Applications folder and find the application in there, right click on it and go to "Get Info" and then select "Open in Low Resolution" mode (also try changing back to light mode, also disabling transparency in the System Preferences -> Accessibility -> Displays).

    Apart from that, only thing I really could suggest is waiting a while for the updates to both MacOS and Adobe CC to arrive as with Mojave still being new to the public there's going to be some problems in integration that wouldn't appear in lab environments.
