    Thanks for that info. For those of you on this forum who have noticed that the problem happens even after unplugging your tablet, are you running iCopy (or any other apps that may contribute to the problem)?

     

    Please let me know what you find out.

    I do not have or run iCopy...  It seems to be irrelevant if I have background applications running or not.

    there's a preference in icopy called "capture mouse drags" that appears to be causing this. when checked, it tries to copy any item you click and drag, system-wide. with this disabled, and icopy running, i am able to drag layers again.

    Just solved this problem! It's because of the wacom pen tablet driver i closed it in the activity monitor and the stupid snapback disapeared. down side is that the tablet won't work for obvious reasons i sugest we demand a solution from wacom on their forums.

    Same issue with me. I am on Mac OS with photoshop CS5 . The issue is due to iCopy app and disabling the drag mouse checkbox stopped this problem. Its big confusion.

    Hirshmon and The Flash, your issue is not related to iCopy? Do you have any other system utilities/drivers installed?

    We don't know of any specifics (other than we've seen iCopy cause this issue, and FinderPop cause others), but we do know this problem is system specific (i.e. not all customers are having this issue).

     

    Can you do a screen shot of your "System Preferences" dialog? Usually, they show up under "Other" in the bottom column.

    What is Candelair? It may be conflict between the Wacom driver and another driver or utility.

    I am also having the same issue but do nothave InCopy installed. For me the issue is that I have a Wacom tablet installed in my office. When I unplug and leave the office without rebooting I encounter this error. If I reboot without the Wacom plugged in, it does not occur.

     

    Attached is my system prefs screenshot also:

    Wouldn't hurt to try. Eliminating all possible culprits is a good approach.

    I do not have icopy installed or any other of the referenced programs that others are discussing, and I still have the problem.  Not to mention the only program that is affected is photoshop... my machine shouldn't be in the influencing factor if the only program affected is photoshop, regardless if some conflict exists somewhere in my machine.  If only photoshop is having troubles with a conflict, then it's my opinion that photoshop should resolve this conflict.

    No, that is bad logic.

    Bugs in the OS or other applications can cause problems that only seem to happen in a single application (it depends on the details of the bug). And they sometimes are such that the affected application cannot work around the original bug.  If we can work around external bugs, we do.

    I've been using CS5 with a Wacom Intuos 3 for a while with none of these issues, however today got a Cintiq and it started happening right away. A full reboot made it go away momentarily, but not for long. I'm getting the snapping issue as well as the brush not being able to draw with the trackpad.

     

    It's been almost a year since this problem came up, please fix this!

     

     

    Moving an object WILL work when you hit cmd+t and it's under Transform. It will also move an object when in a Mask.

    I also have the problem. No iCopy or Candelair. But I do use an Intuos 4.

     

    Move tool snaps back and brush tools (brush, clone, eraser, etc) can only make dots, not paint continuous. I guess because the tool is also unable to move or is snapping back to place.

     

    I work with an external keboard, external monitor and the tablet, not using the trackpad.

     

    MacBook Pro

    10.6.7

    PS 12.04

    Latest Wacom Driver

    Topaz Detail

    Topaz Denoise

     

    Lightroom

    Firefox

    Safari

    Entourage

     

    Restarting PS gets a temporary fix.

    Exact same problem again here. Latest everything installed and no extras/plugins. I have an Intuos tablet though.

     

    The tablet and my magic mouse work fine - it's just the trackpad.

     

    This has to be a PS bug surely? Command-T transform works fine, as does dragging out a selection marque.

    I think the best option is moving by "Ctrl+t"

    I am still seeing this issue using Photoshop CS5 v12.0.4 x64 with the latest Wacom Bamboo driver v.5.2.5-3.

    G

     

    [Moderator] Recent Wacom drivers (since Driver 6.1.6-4 from 22 Nov 2010) are compatable with Lion (10.7), Snow Leopard (10.6), and Leopard (10.5).

    Hi Thanks for bringing this issue. I am having same issue when I plugged in my Intuos4 with Photoshop. If Intuos is unplugged everything is working normal but when I plug it in, I can't move stuff with my trackpad (still able to move with pen and arrow keys) along with other issues people are reporting here.

     

    Please fix this issue ASAP.

     

    Thanks, Harjinder

    Hi everyone,

     

    I'm experiencing the same problem with the snapping using Photoshop CS5 with the Wacom Intuos 4. Objects will not move properly after a while of usage, resulting to having to shut down the program and start again (problems starts again shortly after).

     

    Has there been a solid solution to this problem yet?

     

    Specs:

    - Latest Wacom driver installed

    - Lion latest version

    - Photoshop CS5 (latest installment)

    - No additional apps besides internet browsing

    Has there been any fix for this?

     

    I'm experiencing the same issues of layers snapping back, and pen lines not appearing that @hirshmon described.

     

    My specs:

     

    • Wacom Cintiq 21UX (as well as 12 UX at home)
    • 15" MBP running Snow Leopard
    • CS5

     

    An update from Adobe staff would be reassuring!

    Did you contact Wacom about the issue, as well?

    I have not, as it seems to only be an issue in Photoshop CS5—no other programs are affected. If an Adobe representative replies to the thread and confirms this is still an outstanding issue, I'll try out Wacom's help forum next for sure.

    I too have this problem, and it's very annoying. I'm using a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and an Apple magic trackpad with Photoshop CS5.1 on a mac running Lion Server 10.7.3.
