Mac or PC?
it only happens when i use Photoshop, i think it isnt a mashing shift problem
Caps lock is probably on.
When use Photoshop my shift key is acting like its stuck,
Is it when you are using the Type tool? If so, open the Character panel from the Window menu. The "TT" button formats text to be in All Caps. Click it to toggle it off.
If it's something else, please clarify.
We can only guess unless you give us more information.
What is happening to make you think the shift key is stuck?
Is it related to Type layers?
Or selection of tools?
Has Jane given you the answer with her character panel suggestion?
I'm also having this issue. When I paint, select, or use any tool, it snaps to the last point where I painted or used any tool, as if I had held down the Shift key. I'm not sure if there is a setting I accidentally enabled through a hotkey I mistyped or what.
This happens to me too. After the program has been running for a little while, it will just randomly start adding Shift into all the keybind commands I press (possibly just Ctrl keybinds). Anytime I use a Ctrl keybind, it acts as if I'm pressing Ctrl+Shift. Instead of just saving, it Saves As, etc. etc. Only restarting the program fixes it. No other program acts as if the Shift key is held down when this is occuring in Photoshop.
This happened to me and I think I might have figured it out.
1. Go to Edit > Preferences > Tools
2. Uncheck "Use Shift Key for Tool Switch"
still doesn't work D:
I have never experienced this problem before, I've been experiencing this problem since last week. For example, when I'm using brush.. I always use the shortcut (b) for it but when I press b, it keeps switching tools because the shift key is somehow enabled?? (shift+b)
This only happens on photoshop, and it happens very often which is annoying now because I have to restart photoshop everytime to fix it. Please if you know how to fix it, I'd be really happy to hear it ^^
I just wanted to chime in to say I'm having a similar issue with Adobe XD. I have a brand new MacBook pro laptop with Magic keyboard. I've been using the magic keyboard for work and the shift key has been sticking like crazy. I thought, man, I got a faulty keyboard. I even tried cleaning it, but no luck. Well, I just started working directly off of my laptop without the external keyboard, and it's still sticking! That's how I ended up here. It must be a software issue. A user above mentioned a potential issue with a wacom tablet which I am using. I'll try experimenting with that and see what happens.
I am having the same issue. It is only affecting Photoshop (Windows) and all of the tools.
It is making anything brush based unusable.
Which troubleshooting steps did you perform so far?
Did you try to move the preferences files to the desktop to see if new ones fix the problem?
Also, are you using a graphic tablet? Did you check its drivers?
