Below you'll find a list of the AMD Adobe commands to fix some applications.

Usage: Open terminal and run the below commands as required.

Note: File path changes in each version release. So if the file is not found you can find the specified file manually and replace the path in the below commands.
You can also use this command to find the location of a specific Adobe file,
eg:- if you want to search for MMXCore then run this command:
find /Applications/Adobe* -type f -name "MMXCore" | sed 's/ /\\ /g'

I'm confused. I tried the MKL_DEBUG_CPU_TYPE=5 command in terminal for run InDesign... and yes. It work for me. The surprise is the app is still running without put the command anymore. Even restarting the computer. Is it normal?

I did get the Adobe Suite running with these commands -- there are some issues however... I couldn't open RAW photo files from a Sony A7R4, and also Photoshop crashes when trying to use the liquify tool or the subject select tool unfortunately. Will update if I figure out a workaround, but these are kind of major for me as I use these tools all the time! :(

This could help with some other Adobe apps as well, but I was able to get the Liquify Tool as well as the Subject Selection tools to stop crashing Photoshop when I launch it from the terminal with this command:
MKL_DEBUG_CPU_TYPE=5 /Applications/Adobe\ Photoshop\ 2020/Adobe\ Photoshop\ 2020.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Photoshop\ 2020


I think it's possible with a similar method to launch other Adobe apps with this MKL_DEBUG parameter but not sure...

There is more detail here on the subject:

Hello, I am new here. I have problem with Photoshop 2020 in AMD Mojave. Can't CHANGE FONT and yesterday I was trying to use SELECT>COLOR RANGE and it crashes. When I tried to "change font", it crashed and then I have installed Photoshop 2018 and it works.

When I installed both versions Photoshop 2020 and Photoshop 2018 I have followed this commands:

Applications
Adobe Photoshop CC 2018
Contents
Required
Plug-Ins
Extensions > FastCore.plugin

Applications
Adobe Photoshop CC 2018
Contents
Required
Plug-Ins
Extensions > MMXCore.plugin

Deleted those two plugins:

FastCore.plugin and MMXCore.plugin


Photoshop 2018 is working pretty well, but 2020 doesn't work at all. It crashes when I try to change the font and when I try to select an area by color range. How can I fix it on Photoshop 2020?

Thanks a lot.
Take care.
