So I just recently got a new hard drive and decided to reinstall my Adobe softwares there to save up space on my laptop. After I did that, my tablet eraser stopped working. As in other similiar threads it seems everything else in the tablet driver works properly, both buttons work as well, but the eraser function just uses the same tool I used before no matter which button it is set to.

 

I have Wacom Bamboo Pen CTL-470 and it only seems to have one possible driver I have downloaded from wacom's official site. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and restarted my computer. The Photoshop version I now have is 22.5 and I'm pretty sure that's the issue, everything else works and I had no problem before reinstalling. No clue which version I had before reinstall but I'm pretty sure it was 22.4.3

 

I'm going to try and reinstall the older version now to see if the problem really is the PS version.

Update: The eraser tool works fine in Aseprite, so this is definitely a Photoshop problem.
