CTL+ATL shortcut not working to change brush sizes (Wacom tablet)

I can no longer control my brush size by clicking CTL + ALT. It was working fine two days ago and then went dead. I'm working on a Mac Pro running Sierra 10.12.5 . Is there a bug or conflict going on?

[Title edited by moderator to specify Wacom tablet; also added Wacom tag.]

I just reinstalled the previous version of the Wacom drives and everything is working again. FYI - All you need to do is download and install the drives. Drivers | Wacom

On  Windows it is done using Alt+Right Click+Drag UP/Down,Left/Right.

Thanks, but I run a Mac and I have been using PS for 10 years now. I know how to operate the shortcut. I am wondering if there was an issue with the Wacom update that took place recently.

I use a Wacom on Windows Alt+Right Click+Drag still works in CC 2017.1.1.  So does the Wacom Touch ring.  I know of no Ctrl+Alt shortcut please explain how you use Ctrl+Alt

If you press the CTRL + Option keys at once you change the diameter of the PS brush you're using when you slide/drag the pen on the tablet surface. I was able to do this two days ago and then the shortcut stopped working. Now when I hold down the CTRL+Option keys I only get the brush as a bullseye. I now have to ether change the diameter by using the [ ] keys or by right clicking the pen and calling up the diameter pallet.

PS - I am using Photoshop CC (2017)

PSS - I originally said using Ctrl+ALT keys when I should have said Control+Option keys for my Mac.

All I know is on windows I need to add the Right click and hold while draging. Not a left click drag.

You don't need a right click with the Mac. Just Control and Option 🙂

I have noticed the same problem and have written to the support desk at Wacom. I'm pretty sure its not a PS issue as my mouse still executes the action. I hope I get it fixed soon its slowing me down a lot.
