Hi! I'm using a Cintiq Companion with Photoshop CC. As of a day or two ago, zooming turns Brush and a number of other tools into acting as a Pan tool. It only effects the wacom pen's activity, not the mouse. The hand cursor doesn't display but the function is the same. No stokes, erases, etc. after zooming in or out at all. Photoshop has to be restarted to fix the issue, but it's hardly workable with that solution.
Here's what I've tried:
-Turning it off and on again
-Uninstalling and reinstalling Wacom software
-Assuring my space bar has no issues
I'm climbing the walls trying to figure this out. Any help is appreciated.
Try this other method
1 Select everything inside the quotes here (don't include the quotes): “reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f”
2 Copy it with Ctrl + C on the keyboard.
3 Type Windows Key + X (together), a menu will appear
4 Then type "A" on the keyboard. That will give you an elevated administrator PowerShell command prompt.
5 Paste the command you copied into that window with Ctrl + V
6 Hit "Enter" on the keyboard
You've saved me! Thank you, Ged, It's been a stressful night but this seems like the fix for me. I wish you all the best!
Would you mind explaining this string of info and how/what it effects? I want to be more informed when these issues come up,
It was a change that Microsoft made in a recent update, the string of text is a registry fix to revert the change, you can read more about it here
Cool, thank you so much again! I will look though that reddit thread, and I hope you have an awesome week!
I thought I was going crazy!
Bless you for linking to this super helpful patch and breaking it down into simple instructions!
Saved my Wacom Cintiq Compainion 2!!
WHY should we have to do all this code stuff to make YOUR product work?? Seriously, Ive used PS for over a decade and the last 2 versions have been the worst, by far. This glitch is constant and now I have to fix it for you? TRASH.
