    Hello Everyone,
    I am runing photoshop cs2 on my macbook pro 2.0ghz 2 gig of ram and I have noticed recently some seirous speed issues. I get the spinning beach ball so much that it is unusuable. I get it on simple tasks like switching layers or typing text. These are on very small basic files like text and a white background. I am running the same version of photoshop on a new Intel iMac 2.0ghz 2 gig of ram and It runs great I have no issues at all. One diffrenece between the two versions could be fonts. I have more on my macbook pro than on my imac. Could this cause slow downs and spinning beach balls when I try to even switch a layer? I also have trouble sometimes even opening a file. Any advice on how to make this stop would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have a crazy amount of fonts activated it could well be the cause. Although it would also slow other Apps that use fonts too.
