CTRL+ALT+PEN Brush size does not work (photoshop)

System:

Mac OsX Sierra 10.12.4
Wacom Driver Version 6.3.22-3
Intous5 Touch
Photoshop CC 2017 (latest Version)

I have this issue that I can not use the CTRL+ALT shortcut to adjust the seize and softness of the brush with the wacom pen (!!!).
That shortcut is a standard in photoshop, while with the wacom tablet it tuns to a eyedropper, which does not pick any color or whatsoever....
It works without any problems with a mouse, though.

Does anyone have the same problem?
For me, this is a major workflow problem, hence it is more precise than anything else.

Same here :-(
Happens after the latest update. NOT good, please fix ASAP. It worked ok with previous driver.
Intous pro medium on mac.

I had a Wacom tablet some years ago, I dropped it because of driver problems on Mac. Are they still doing that? Fuxxxx up the drivers ?

Besides this problem I still ike my Intous Pro

For the moment use an Expresskey or pen button, assign 'modifier' and select multiple modifiers as needed.

This has been solved with 6.3.23-3 already. See http://cdn.wacom.com/u/productsupport/d ... .3.23.html.
Please download the version from http://www.wacom.com/support/product-support/drivers.

----SOLUTION----
Just go to WACOM PREFERENCES in your computer.
Go to the PEN tab
In PEN BUTTONS choose MODIFIER
Choose ALT and RIGHT CLICK from the pop-up.
BOOOM!!!!! problem solved.

This works, thank you!

However, having to sacrifice a button just because the software is bugged is not an ideal solution..

I am on the most up-to-date 6.3.30-6 on Windows 10 and was unable to use the ALT (on tablet) + right click (on pen) to change brush size. It's still bugged. For now, I'll keep using the modifier option you recommended and hope it will be resolved in a near future update.
