My Wacom tablet does not cooperate when I want to change hardness/size of my brush in photoshop.

It works with mouse and shortcuts on keyboard, but when I use alt and click the button on my pen (which is set to be a "right-click") and then I press it onto the tablet surface and go up and down to change these values it just keeps showing eye-dropper tool as if the right-click was not decteded, just alt.(then I press button on my pen to check if the right-click is working at all, and it is. The problem seems to be when I press alt and then a button on my pen).

I checked my wacom settings and they are default:

tip - one click button closer to the tip - right-click second button - double-click

It worked in the past...do you know what else to check to see why is it not working at all or me now?

  • it worked in the beinning but for some reason it stopped. The shortcuts work well with a mouse right-click, but with pen it seems like the right-click works only for one click but cannot holds it which is necessary to make a size up or down move. – Jago Ratajczak Mar 18 '18 at 21:16

  • Won't fix your issue... but shift/ [ & ] are the quickest way to change hardness – Tetsujin Mar 20 '18 at 8:23
