Now this is driving me insane! Running 21.1.0 on an HP Elitebook running x64 Win7.
With some tools including Clone Stamp, Spot Healing/Healing Brush, Blur, Eraser, and Patch, the stroke jumps up and left about 4 inches after I release the cursor. However, this "jump" doesn't occur with the Brush tool.
This wasn't happening yesterday. I have tried messing with the GPU settings, restarting, un/reinstalling, begging, exorcism, everything. GIF of issue below.
It's a known issue with 21.1 and has been reported to Adobe
You can revert back to version 21.0.3 from the CC app until Adobe fixes the issues with this new update
I'm experiencing the same issue. I tried updating the GPU and Display Tablet drivers but it didn't fix it.
Another thing to mention is that in my case, it does happen with the brush tool as well.
Just as for OP, only click + drag will trigger this issue. Just clicking seems to work fine.
Also, this happens only with the mouse, the tablet pencil works just fine, which makes PS usable 🙂
This bug is still present in the latest 21.1.3. Any updates or progress on this issue or work around?
It happens even with a color picker in any color range or selection mode - not allowing to select an area since the cursor jumps to a complete random position.
The worst occurence is when using the hand tool to pan with the mouse, it jumps sometimes across the screen panning at a complete random spot making Photoshop totally useless when using the mouse.
Any operation with the Wacom tablet works fine - currently i just use the pen in photoshop, since the mouse is unusable for almost 90% of the time.
Would be awesome to see this fixed as soon as possible,

this is an extremely frustrating issue that i've been having for months. My work flow is slowed down and i am beyond back logged now as a result. It appears to happen in both PS and LR. If i increase the size of my brush it makes it worse. Please help Adobe!
I had this issue once....it was killing me...I tried everything...it turned out I had set something on my tablet and that was causing the issues.
I am having the same issue but my curser jumps at everything. I can't pick colors, I can't even pull anything from the drop down menus. I don't have a tablet plugged in. I cannot get anything done. Please Adobe help..

Has anyone found an answer to this problem. I have updated to the 2021 version and was not having any problems other than slow boot up (2-3 min). When I logged in this morning (having changed nothing) My cursor is jumping around when I click on a tab. For instance, if I click on the filter dropdown, the cursor jumps to type! Any ideas? Did I inadvertantly change a setting or something?
I may have figured it out. I have reset my preferences and so far am not having the issue....
