Have you tried it without the tablet connected to see if it works that way? I have no problem rotating and zooming, so it's either your tablet causing the issue, or maybe you need to reset your PS preferences.
This is going to sound pretty dense....
Do you mean using the tablet via Bluetooth connection without the cord, or using the trackpad/mouse or whatever instead of the tablet?
ill try the reset preferences.
Unpluging the tablet and using a mouse or trackpad.
Ok so I use a touchscreen laptop, and the touchscreen pinch and rotate gestures work perfect... ugh. So this means it is a tablet issue I assume. Also means it will likely not be an easy fix
I am having this same problem after re-installing Photoshop and was wondering if anyone knew of a solution.
My issue is the same as the Original poster.
When I rotate my canvas using my Cintiq's touch wheel everything works fine, but as soon as I zoom in or out, the canvas snaps back to 0% rotation.
Ive been using this tablet for roughly 6 years and I could always zoom in and out of a rotated canvas without it resetting to 0%
Is there perhaps a setting somewhere that controls this?
I can’t reproduce the issue. I have release 19.1.1 of PS CC, a 27” iMac (late 2012), and a Wacom Intuos medium size tablet (wired, no Bluetooth). I can use the wheel to rotate the image, and once it is at an angle, I can zoom in and out with several PS tools and even the Wacom wheel, without resetting the angle.
Not sure if this is any help.... I use the Wacom pen buttons to zoom in and out and recently I have had the same issue of zooming resting the canvas rotation. I had the pen button settings selected as 'zoom in' and 'zoom out' in the Wacom desktop center. Changing these to key strokes (ALT -) and (ALT =) instead seems to have solved the issue.
