I am running the latest version of Windows and the latest version of Photoshop. I use an XP-Pen Artist 22e to draw, and the drivers are up to date. Two days ago, Photoshop stopped working, for no reason. It kept getting stuck on the hand tool, no matter what tool I selected. If I had the pen tool selected, it would look like the pen tool, cursor and all, but it'll function like the hand tool. It only does this with my pen stylus too, if I use my mouse it works fine. Pressing the space bar doesn't work, resetting preferences hasn't worked, I've re downloaded both Photoshop and my tablet drivers, and turned my computer on and off and it doesn't do anything.
It will work like kinda normal if I turn digital ink off, but I need digital ink for pen pressure. None of my hotkeys work with digital ink turned off either. This issue is only with Photoshop too, I've tried several other programs and they all work fine.
It seem that many Windows Photoshop user are having Problems with Microsoft INK after some of the recent Windows 10 Updates
KB4089848 and newer Cumulative updates the would include that update. I was Wintab APIs for Photoshop because I have an older version of Photoshop that only support Pen with Wintab API. I Also have CC 2014 and CC 2018 installed. I do not have Problems with Pen pressure for CC 2014 and CC 2018 for I add the PSUserConfig.txt into my Photoshop Preferences for CC 2014 and CC 2018, For everything else I use Microsoft INK I only use Wintab API with Photoshop.
However, I have a Wacom tablet that I can configure that way.
I'm in the same Boat, it happen at the same time and also because of that Windows udate.
I hope this gets resolved soon or I probably have to sell my Tablet and get a different brand...
And thats all because of a lousy windows update, on which I dont see any difference anyway, other then something negative now...
