Brush Dynamics Stop Working in Photoshop 21.1 and above

I'm having an issue which is ruining my workflow whereby brushes lose all their form.

It seems the Brush Settings stop working when I leave Photoshop to work go to another app for a bit and then return.

It appears to be affecting the brush dynamics.

Sometimes I get a warning icon next to 'Control' on the specific 'Shape Dynamics' category e.g. 'Pen Pressure' as though Photoshop isn't recognising the Wacom Pen or tablet I'm using.

Below is an example: 

  • New brush created
  • Brush behaves correctly at first – Look at the 3 strokes top left.
  • Return to Photoshop and the brush loses it's appearance – 3 strokes to the right

Here is a video of the problem.

The 2 strokes on the right have been made with the brush settings working correctly the others are the same brush malfunctioning.

I am using a Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 with the latest drivers installed on OS 10.15.4
