Hello,

I have a 2.7 Ghz Core i5 12 GB ram iMac  with Mountain Lion 10.8.2 and use CS5.5... Overall it works fine.  I do feel that some apps, especially DreamWeaver and Fireworks, tend to take longer to open and perform certain tasks... often on I get the dreaded spinning circle. Is this normal with CS5.5??

Should I consider moving to CS6 to get faster response (plus the new features)?

Thanks for your Expert Advice.

Regards

I would be surprised if CS6 is noticeably faster than CS5.  I think you should first try to see if there is a problem on your computer that is causing the spinning wheel.

Open Disk Utility and run Verify Disk to make sure you don't have disk directory corruption. Whlle you are at it run Repair Permissions.

You might also check the console logs for errors.
