Hey folks,
I've been painting in photoshop recently, but a strange bug occurs. At random, while painting on a layer, my pen tool will change to a mouse cursor, and no matter what I do, it won't change back unless I restart photoshop. I'm currently using a Microsoft Surface Studio 2 with the pen when I am doing this. Is there some compatibility issue?
