After receiving numerous complaints from players, Fortnite has said they will fix an issue that players who use a controller have been experiencing when in Creative mode. Developers have said that they are aware of the issue causing controller input delay and plan to have the issue resolved before the end of the upcoming week.
We’re aware of reports about controller input delay for certain actions in Creative and plan to address these in both our next release and a subsequent one.— Fortnite Status (@FortniteStatus) November 29, 2019

Essentially, Fortnite players have said that whenever they have tried to place a wall or edit a structure, the game’s controller input delay would cause the action to take extra time to perform. For many players of the game, especially those who use controllers, it has been extremely frustrating and understandably so if the game takes 2-3 seconds to respond to a simple action. The good news is, according to the official Fortnite Community Issues Trello, there is a potential workaround if you are one of the players dealing with this problem. The workaround, however, essentially suggests that players “restart the Creative mode” and “open/close the menu” as a potential fix. Although the workaround suggest by Fortnite isn’t effective as some may hope, it does provide an immediate solution.
If you are a player who primarily uses a controller to play, the new fix/update could arrive as early as Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. Other issues that are said to be on the agenda for the Fortnite dev team this week include “DirectX 12 beta stability issues,” “Issue with Eliminations without aiming down sights Challenge,” and “Missing quick bar on mobile.”
Fornite has found incredible success with Chapter 2 and will look to continue to build upon the success until the current season comes to a close in February 2020.
