    What's Up: Long Load Times for the "Open File" Window in Photoshop CS3

    I refuse to believe there is something wrong with my MacBook Pro, and am hoping it's something to do with my software.

    Here's the deal:

    When I click on the "Open" items within Photoshop CS3, the dialog window opens, but then spinning beach ball appears for a looooong time. Sometimes, after a minute, it finally lists all the files within the directory, but other times the program crashes.

    It's gotten to the point that I never "Open" a file directly within Photoshop - I just use Finder, then drag the file into the PS icon on my dock, as a cheap workaround.

    An Art Director friend mentioned something about "Appendices". What's up with those? I googled "Photoshop Appendices" but got nothing usable.

    Help me out please.

    I use a licensed CS3 kit on a previous generation MBP 2.4GHZ (the last one released before the unibodies).

    Is the BBOD [beachball of death] system-wide?

    In that case, try running Onyx. Repair permissions, clean up caches and all other temporary files. Check your disk space too.
