I didn't know exactly where to put this so I hope I put it in the right place.

I have Photoshop CC2018 and for some reason there's horrible pen lag. I've tried searching for fixes but I've yet to find any. None of them pointed towards this site so I decided to ask here. I've got good PC specs so my PC shouldn't be the problem and I can use other drawing software and there's no lag so that can't be it either. I've tried both wired and wireless and it's the same both ways. Here's what I'm working with:

Wacom Intuos Pro L (2017)
i7-7700K
GTX 1080 Ti
16GB 2666Mhz RAM
Samsung 850 EVO 250GB

Had the same issue (+ zooming in forced my wacom into the move tool constantly). The solution is to downgrade to the first cc2018 version. From 19.1.2 and up most wacom tablets have major issues with photoshop.

Interesting, thanks for that tip. I'll try this and see how it goes.

**edit**
Just went down to 19.0 and it's still laggy. :/

Second fix is.

Uninstall your wacom driver
Uninstall photoshop (BACKUP ALL YOUR PREFERENCES AND SETTINGS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Install photoshop cc 2017
Launch cc2017
Close cc2017
Install wacom drivers
Test in cc2017.
Install cc2018 (before 19.1.2)
Test cc2018

This is for issues with the cintiques but might work for you.

So testing 2017 first is essential? Because I've tried 2017 before and the same problems were there as well. I didn't try it with uninstalling and reinstalling the Wacom driver though. I didn't think that would have been necessary because it has been doing this since the first time I ever installed the drivers and it works without lag on every other program. I just hope this helps, lol.

Here's how it went:

Uninstalled Wacom driver
Uninstalled Photoshop
Installed Photoshop CC 2017
Launched CC 2017
Closed CC 2017
Installed Wacom drivers
Tested in CC 2017, still had lag but decided to finish up the rest of the instructions.
Installed CC 2018 (went with 19.1.1)
Tested CC 2018, still lag.
