Hello, I am working on a macbook pro on with the mac Os Catalina and photshop 21.1.

I am using the frame animation option, with a wacom intuos CTH-490/k, with the 6.3.38-3 (macOS 10.12 - 10.15) 96.4 MB 12/19/2019 driver.

 

While using the paintbrush tool, it sometimes switches automatically to the eyedropper tool. I am then able to select other tools, but the cursor and the function stays on eyedropper.

The strangest thing is when I switch to the browser window, the letters I type come out in glyphs even if my keyboard is set to QWERTZ/swiss keyboard.

here you can see the glyphs in the search bar and my keyboard set to QWERTZ in top right corner

 

I have no other choice then to quit photoshop and reboot my computer for things to return to normal. 

 

kind regards,

Ari
