Photoshop CC Release 23.5.1

macOS Monterey

version 12.6

iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, late2015)

Processor 3.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel i5

Memory 16GB 1867 MHz DDR3

Graphics AMD Radeon R9 M395 2  GB

Wacom intuos pro small

Recently for no reason that I can tel the Dynamic Brush size keystroke (control+option+drag) stopped working. When I try it now I just get the little 'notepad' icon as if just the control key is working. The option key is working because if I just press that I get a pipet sample icon and colour 'wheel' icon.

I have tried the tool reset, no joy and then did the full reset and still no joy.

Please can someone help with an answer.

I've just been messing with different tools to see if anything else was playing up. Tried the dynamic brush size keystroke whilst using spot healing tool and half way through a stroke it started working. I'm just going to put it down to a glitch in the matrix. Thank you everyone for your help.

Have you given Photoshop full disk access in Mac OS system preferences/Security and Privacy?

Also check your settings under Accessibility/Keyboard and check your navigation has Enable Full Keyboard access off and that you dont have a keyboard preference overriding your PS shortcut.

It doesn't work with the mouse or the Wacom tablet and pen.
