Hello,
I use MS Surface Pro and Surface Studio, both with a Surface Pen and both with Windows 10.

Since some days there is no more Pen-drawing possible with the brush tool on both devices (with each a single pen) in Photoshop CC.
When you zoom in once, the pen works like a hand tool but not like a brush.

The pen still works correct in MS Ink, OneNote and even in Illustrator.

Ever since the last windows update, whenever I go to use my wacom intous art with my photoshop it will pan whenever I go to draw with my pen. It is severely hindering my work, and I hope that a fix/update/patch will come soon

Okay, so this is a frustrating problem.  When I am zoomed in on an image near its edge (any of them) and am using the pen or eraser tool with an initial vertical direction, it instead acts to scroll the image up or down.  This does not occur with an initial horizontal direction to my stroke, but I have not tested it with other tools.  I have tried updated and finding out what the problem is on-line, but I could not find a similar case.  Is there a fix for this?

This is a Microsoft problem and was fixed with the latest patch. Can't give you the KB number for it, but there's a whole bunch of fixes - the very last one refers to where they screwed up the Ink code and effectively stuffed up everyone's pens in Photoshop...

I pick brush to paint, zoom in and start drawing, but the only thing that happens is that the canvas moves around. When I zoom out completely, until I see the margins, only then the pen will work.
