Stuck modifier key issue (Yup, still there.)

From the driver's latest release notes...

"We fixed an issue which caused modifiers (shift, control, etc.) triggered from ExpressKeys, Pen Buttons, or the eraser to not function correctly when coupled with the keyboard."

This has not been fixed.

In the 3 and a half years of owning the Cintiq 27QHDT it has never functioned as advertised. The touch features are unusable and the drivers have never functioned without major usability issues that interfere with workflow.

These drivers are still a trash fire.

As much as I understand this can be frustrating, this post doesn't help much fixing the problem.

Many customers that reported stuck key issues previously have reported that the latest driver fixed the problem for them. We had a few customers test it before the official release to be sure.

Maybe the problem you are experiencing is another one but if you don't explain it properly, we cannot help you.

I actually have this issue too. Stuck option key in my case, which I have mapped to the pen button. I am working on an iMac Pro with the newest version of Catalina and I have a Cintiq 27QHD. It always appears after two or three hours of working in Photoshop. Sometimes restarting the driver works. But in most cases I have to restart the whole computer. Sometimes even the whole Cintiq stops working. It's still functioning as a screen. But there is no input whatsoever registered. I have tried several pens - they all run into the same issue afte a while. I am working with the newest version of Adobe Photoshop CC by the way. Before Catalina, everything worked fine for me though. And yes - it's frustrating. DEEPLY frustrating.

The issue remains - even with the latest version of your driver. I am on Catalina on an iMac Pro with all the latest software. And stop referring to your "support team", because there is no such thing. Get your drivers straight. NOTHING works. I am drawing for a few seconds and suddenly I can only draw straight lines as if I would press the shif key. This is a global issue since it does not change if I switch between Photoshop versions or restart the programs/reboot the computerl And no - it is NOT my pen. It's present on all my pens …

I purchased a Cintiq 32 Pro. A really phantastic pice... unfortunetly it doesnt work correctly...

I ran it on an actual iMac 5K with latest Version of Mac OS Catalina (15.3) and latest Wacom Driver (6.3.40-2).
Everyday, after use the Tablet for 2-3 hours, i run into tbe sticky keys eroor, where the shift and alt modifier key get stucked and make the tablet unuasable. after a restart it works for a few minutes an the problem comes again.

Impossible to work with this...
This drivves me crazy....

Does anybody has the same Problem, is there a solution?
Otherwise i will sent it back to wacom, cause it is unuasable...

Kind regards Sebastian

This is a known problem with the 6.3.40-2 driver:

Reverting to the previous 6.3.39-1 should fix it, here's the download link: ... 3.39-1.dmg

Hello, Thank you very much...

Installed the Driver 6.3.39-1. Unfortunately I must reconfigure all Settings... Wich takes about 2 Hours... cause I can't restore the Settings from newer Driver...

But the issue is almost gone...

No answer from Wacom Support... such a great Product, such a miserable Service and Software...

So Happy that it now can use the Cintiq

Sorry for Bad English :)
Kind regards

I had the same issue with my Intuos Pro model PTH-860. On my pad there is a bluetooth button on the side by the touch ring. For some crazy reason, when I clicked on the button, it fixed the problem. I know it makes absolutely no sense, but it worked. I only found out about it from another user that posted this fix. I hope it helps, because it really is an annoying bug!
