Copy link to clipboard
Unpredictably, when moving from my canvas to selecting a new layer, the cursor will behave as if double clicked.This means that when single clicking the thumbnail it will bring up layer properties, and when single clicking the name it will attempt to rename the layer.The issue is difficult to duplicate as it happens at random, but frequently enough to disrupt workflow.I am using fully updated Windows 10 and a Wacom Intuos Pro. This problem does not manifest when rolled back to Version 21.0.3
This should be fixed in 21.2.1 or later.
We are happy to announce the release of Photoshop 21.2.1 that

Let us know how it goes.
Something like this has been happening to me too me for a while as well. I'm using a Huion H950P and when I go from working on the canvas to clicking on a layer with my pen, the layer itself will drag and drop somewhere and the entire panel locks up (I guess it was a double-click reading the comments) but the change wasn't visible until I slap the mouse and it corrects itself and the layers jump around.
Apologies to write in an old thread but after having the same issue I've started checking a few settings and found how to fix it, I tested on two machines and work on both so I decided to write in case somebody will land here as I did.
Just go to Control Panel>Pen and Touch and then disable Press and Hold=Right Click. Now all works as expected, when I press the eyeball it will hide the layer instead of hide/unhide the layer, also when pressing an action, when set to button mode, it will run it once, and not twice, and other issues.
