Hello, 

I have been using my Wacom Cintiq Pro for some time. But for some reason touch doesn't work anymore in Photoshop - at least not like it used to. I can still zoom in, etc. But I used to create and move layers with a touch of my finger instead of using a shortcut or the pen. Now when I click on it or click on open or click to create a new project it doesn't work. It will be selected so it kinda looks like I clicked it but nothing is happening. I can still click on Edit, Windows, Help and similar tabs. But I used to use touch like clicking with the pen or mouse. But clicks don't seem to be recognized as a mouse click anymore when I touch the tablet with my finger. I probably accidentally changed a setting but I don't really know what else to change. I tried different Windows settings, Wacom settings, and I have gestures on in PS (that's why I can still move the canvas around for example).

Any help would be much appreciated 🙂 

Thx

I'm also having this problem.  It seems like the touch of a finger is now seen as a 'hover over' by a cursor instead of registering as a click.  This is annoying since I used to be able to switch tools using a touch of my finger on the icons.  Now the only piece that really registers as a click appears to be the pen itself.

 

I've scoured the settings but I can't seem to find a setting to relate a finger touch back to the same action as a mouse click.

Same issue here, on a laptop with touch screen. Until recently I could click any button or click-sensitive area (like a layer, a layer's mask etc) with my finger, but now it just doesn't register anymore. Very annoying. If this is a setting that can be turned on/off, I'd like to know so I can give it the boot

I'm suddenly having a similar problem. I have a Cintiq Pro and Engine. I used to be able to select and/or hide layers in Photoshop with a one-finger touch. But now I can't. I can select tools with one-finger touch. And some other things work with a one-finger touch. But not selecting layers. This has crippled my drawing because now I have to select and click on EVERYTHING with my pen.

Having the exact same problem. Working on a Cintiq Pro 24. Photoshop ignores all taps. In the Layers tab, for example, I can scroll up and down, but can't select a layer or do any actions with it. So annoying.

Not sure if this is the solution to your problem as I use a regular desktop but it worked for me. Go to the 'move tool' (4 arrows) and from there select 'auto-select'.
