This week I will be traveling to a location for work that does not have a PC available, but they do have a MacBook Pro that I could borrow. I will be bringing my tablet, an Intuous Pen & Touch Medium (CTH-680). On Wednesday evening I will have time to setup my Photoshop settings (hopefully the cloud will sync properly) and getting used to the commands again (I used Mac a decade ago, it will be like riding a bike :).


The day after on Thursday I will have a very short timeframe where I will actually use Photoshop for a demonstration, I will be mainly using the tablet for masking photos and brush painting where Pen pressure need to work properly. So I am just hoping to get a heads up of what the worst-case scenario might be before it might happen. Hopefully nothing, though! 


I was hoping the Apple community here could help, maybe some of you have the same tablet as me? 


For instance on PC everytime I have a fresh install I need to turn off some Pen settings in Windows 10 that interferes in Photoshop, like the long press is a right-click, and the solution is not immediately obvious unless you spend some time on Google search. There is also sometimes an issue with Windows Ink. I don't know if Mac has something equivalent. 


Thank you in advance!
