After endless hours wasted, I found the solution for an issue I've had using the Intous tablet with my Macbook Pro. The brush would get stuck and I couldn't hit Photoshop shortcuts between brush strokes. I went through the hassle of reinstalling all drivers, buying a new tablet and setting all my Photoshop settings back to default before finding the following simple 30-second fix. This issue pertains to people using Apple computers with Photoshop CS6 or CC and a Wacom Intous tablet. The fix is for the following issues:
• Menus, panels, or dialog boxes turn white and become unresponsive
• Keyboard shortcuts stop working
• Lasso tool selections close prematurely and unexpectedly
• Photoshop becomes unresponsive
Like many out there, I use Google and YouTube to fix all my issues. Despite the inordinate amount of time spent searching, this was the first time I couldn't find the answer on either of these platforms. I uninstalled and reinstalled all software related to Adobe and Wacom. Still didn't work. So I bought a new tablet. Still didn't work. My last resort was to call Wacom which fixed my issue quickly. I was told it is a known issue and they sent me a link to fix this. Why they couldn't send out an update to the software is beyond me.
I'm writing this article in hopes that anyone searching this issue in the future stumbles upon this.
