Right click and drag to adjust brush size is not working

In Photoshop 22.4.2. (Apple Silicon) on my M1 Mac Mini running on Big Sur 11.4, adjusting the brush size while right clicking is not possible. 

When right clicking and attempting to drag-adjust the brush size it only shows the normal window where I have to manually set the size & hardness.

As I'm coming from Windows, where this always worked - did I miss something or is this a known bug?

Hi

For Windows the shortcut is ALT + right click and for the MAC it's OPT + CMD and click

Thanks a lot for the reply. Unfortunately, this doesn't work either. I also can't change the brush size using my Wacom Tablet. Usually on Windows it worked just fine when right clicking on the pen and then dragging it to adjust the brush size/hardness. Is there a possibility that Photoshop is misconfigured for Mac or something in the System Settings? I left everything on default so it seems unlikely to me.

Try ctrl-alt click-dragging (edit: with the left button).

»Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) checked?
