I’ve used a Wacom tablet for years. 8 months ago when i switched to OSX, my tablet worked fine in every other app. except Photoshop (7.0.1). Various driver + version updates later, and it still doesn’t work properly. It’s resistant to click, then when i get it to click, it won’t unclick (like will start dragging a marquee and won’t let go). In some ways it behaves as though the pressure setting is way off but I’ve adjusted and adjusted it, made a separate tablet profile for Photoshop … nothing works.
It pretty much just goes bonkers and becomes completely unusable in Photoshop, but as soon as i get out of Photoshop, it’s fine again. I don’t see anyone else in this forum having this problem, which is worrisome. What could be causing this?

I have the same issue, my Wacom Intuos used to work just fine in Photoshop CS3 but now all of a sudden after a month or so of non usage, I try to work with it tonight and it works fine in all Mac programs, and it moves the cursor around fine in Windows 7, but when I try to paint with it it makes crazy lines instead of going where I want it to go, and pen sensitivity is out the window. I have tried restarting Photoshop AND unplug-plug-back-in the tablet but to no avail. Help!!!
