Photoshop CC sticky when panning with Wacom

wacomTip for Mac users

If you experience sticking when panning an image in Adobe Photoshop CC, while it is worth making sure all your drivers are up to date, the issue is most likely with your Adobe photoshop preferences corrupting.

Deleting or renaming these will cause a new set to be created. Instructions for doing so are below.

Having spent six months with six new Mac Pro’s, including Apple testing them, hopefully somebody finds this useful. The fact there is a procedure for deleting your preferences must mean Adobe are aware, but there is no fix as at time of writing.

To manually restore preferences to default:

  • Find the preference file that you want to reset and move it to another location. When you restart Photoshop, a new preference file will be created in the original location. See Preference filenames and locations.

To restore preferences quickly using a keyboard shortcut:

  • Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) as you start Photoshop. You are prompted to delete the current settings. The new preferences files are created the next time you start Photoshop.

Note: Using the keyboard shortcut, preference files for custom shortcuts, workspaces, and color setings will also be reset to default.
