Stylus still draws when hovering above Cintiq in Photoshop CC 2017
Posted: Wed 26. Jul 2017, 10:25
I've been experiencing this problem ever since I upgraded to Photoshop CC 2017 earlier this year. There are many, many bugs that weren't there in the previous version of Ps CC 16 but this one issue is virtually rendering my Cintiq/Photoshop work virtually impossible. I am finding that when I lift my stylus away from the surface of my Cintiq 24HD the cursor still moves when the stylus is not in contact with the Cintiq screen surface. It does this randomly but most noticeable when I am adjusting the colour palette sliders when I am using the paintbrush. I adjust a slider but as I move the cursor away to resume painting it drags the slider with it even though I have lifted the stylus away from the surface. When I am drawing or painting, the brush leaves 'tails' as I move the brush away from the surface. The pen tool is almost impossible to use with the stylus pulling out nodes after i have created a point. I have managed to move the cursor around with the tip of the stylus up to about 5cm away from the surface. I have never had this issue before and it arrived with the upgrade of Photoshop CC back in January. I am assuming it's a Photoshop issue but possibly a Wacom/Cintiq driver issue...I just don't know. I've just updated the Cintiq driver software to no improvement (worse if anything). I am using a Mac running OS El Capitain 10.11.6. Has anybody else experienced this issue and have a fix for it? Many thanks in advance.
