Hello

Since updating to the 2015.5 version of Photoshop CC while on El Capitan my shortcuts started acting weird. A few examples: When drawing and hitting the undo or step back keys randomly (but quite often) it doesnt return me back to the brush key, instead it goes to the arrow key you get when pressing the cmd key in photoshop and cause I continue drawing I instead move the layer. The other major problem is the shift key wont engage until I press it a few times, but then it wont disengage. So I keep getting straight lines long after I lifted my finger, then I have to mash the shift key for it to go back to normal. This never happened on the 2015 version of PS CC. Cause it was close to Sierra release I decided to just deal with it and waited for the update. Meanwhile I downloaded the previous version (2015) and the bug happened there also(but didnt before)So I thought it was a OS/PS combo problem. Come Sierra its the same thing. Tried fresh install of macOS and Photoshop but still have the same problem. Also tried with an external keyboard to no change. tried a fresh install of wacom drivers still nothing.

Anyone have this problem, or something similar? I am going nuts.

Currently on macOS Sierra, PS CC 2015.5(legit) rMBP 15" mid 2015 and a Cintiq 13" companion hybrid

*Solved* I tried everything except getting previous wacom drivers. Now it all works. :/

I get that problem a lot. It's like the shift key gets stuck internally.

Not sure where the problem is located.
I wrote that I have solved the problem. Its the new Wacom driver. Just download a previous version.

I'm at a loss on where to find the previous drivers.
Find your product on Wacom's Support Page, and find the Drivers section then pick your product. under each product is a "Show Older Versions" button - depending on the product, they'll go back up to 15-odd years.

Heck, there's still PPC support for the Classic OS9 environment for a couple of products...
