Hi ruku2k!!

 

Exact same issue here. Mine picks random spots on the left hand side of the screen

 

When I try to select this black triangle (image attached) with 3 clicks on the corners, this happens:::

 

I've tried re- installing photoshop, re-setting the tools and even change the graphic processor settings from advance to basic.

None of this worked....

 

Please we need some help with this.

 

regards

 

Eduardo

Me too.

 

Below is a screenshot of the  regular lasso tool... but it's happening on all three tools.

 

I try to make a selection anywhere on the image... and then, upon letting go of the mouse button (in the case of the regular lasso tool), the dotted selection line darts down and to the left in order to create some ungodly shape that I did not intend.

 

In my case, all three lasso tools are rendered useless!

Please help!!

Hate this lasso tool - I am selecting points and it just quits or the points disappear! Usually cannot go past 4 points and the selection is terminated by application. It is taking me hours, what use to take minutes.

Same here and it's driving me absolutley insane. I use this tool every two seconds... but ever since I upgrated from CS6 to Photoshop 2020, I've been having this problem. It doesn't select where I want and it "skips" when switching between the freehand lasso and the line lasso tools. Has anyone figured out how to fix this?

I think I may have found one solution

https://www.top-password.com/blog/turn-on-off-press-and-hold-for-right-clicking-in-windows-10/

if you cannot find this press and hold menu - look for it this way

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/pen-touch-options-no-longer-exist/6fc27a28-433...

Let us know if this solved your issue

So far, the selection tool is working much much better... almost perfect
