Hey!

So Im on a macbook Pro 13" restina, and updated to Photoshop 2017. Im using a Wacom Intuos Pro Medium.

So when I use the bush tool, I always use the alt/option key to get the eyedropper up. However now when I do it, it sometimes gets stuck in eyedropper instead of switching back to the brushtool!

This is incredibly annoying when I use it to mix color quite rigorously, so I was thinking it would be photoshop not being able to keep up. But I restarted the software, the program, opened the smallest file etc. Nothing works. Its keep getting stuck. It might be something with the wacom, but this shouldnt matter since this happens when using the alt/option key on the mac keyboard!

Any ideas?

Those articles do not address the issue. When clicking alt on a keyboard, or with a Wacom tablet there is a significant delay 2-3 seconds between switching to brush, selecting color picker, and switching back to brush. Sometimes it can take even longer and any strokes you've made in that time lag and appear after. While digitally painting this is annoying because it has been a quick process to select a new color and doesn't do it everytine, but when it does it catches you off guard and not a single comment in the forum has a legitimate answer, just people posting things about brush lag...which is not what this is. Please re-read his comment and post an actual answer that will help this situation.

So, the best solution I found was to turn off the "Color Ring" setting in the eyedropper options. Before 1-2 seconds of annoying delay switching from picking to paint brush, now quick as a rabbit.
Dear Adobe devs - features like the color ring are nice, however, they become useless if they are slow as hell. Please improve - we're paying you good money for your product every month.

I was having all kinds of problems with this, and I found if I hide the rulers, it fixed the problem immediately. Using Windows 10, with a very old Wacom.
