This is an issue I ran into a while ago & it took me few hours before finding the solution. Which was simple, but very hard for me to come up with on my own.
As many of Wacom graphics tablets users, Windows produce these annoying bubbles you see whenever you press any modifier key like CTRL, Shift or Alt. One common solution is to disable these bubbles in the Group Policy in Windows. This solution has worked very well for me in Windows 7, but totally didn’t work in Windows 10.
After some research, I discovered that disabling Windows Ink from the Wacom Properties dialog solve this problem, but I completely lose pressure sensitivity.
A little solution I found in Adobe forum completely solved this issue with me. So I don’t take credit for it. I am just spreading the word here, which is part of what I do in this blog.
Quickly go to:-
Kindly follow the following advice to solve this problem:-
Disable Windows Ink From Wacom Tablet Properties if you haven’t already.
You can access this dialog from the start menu.
Open Notepad, or any text editor of your choice
As long as it can save files with the TXT extension.
Type the following lines in the file:-
# Use WinTab
The first line is not really necessary, as it’s a comment. And it just tells Photoshop to use Wintab on its own.
Save the file with the name PSUserConfig.txt
Place this file Into Photoshop settings folder.
C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\<Photoshop Version>\<Photoshop version> Settings\
The exact path is different based on the version of Photoshop version you have installed, as well as the username you are logged in with. In my case, the path was like this on the computer I am typing this with:-
C:\Users\Erica\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 Settings
Note:- The AppData folder is hidden by default. You need to unhide it first before proceeding, or to just paste the folder name in Windows Explorer. Click here for the instructions on how to unhide folders in different versions of Windows.
Restart Photoshop if it’s running & you are set to go.
I hope this solution has helped you with this problem that made me pull my hair for some time. This solution may not be suitable to those who use other application than Photoshop, but at least it’s useful for some of us.
