The free hand tool still selected in the Liquify, Camera RAW, Lens Correction, Filter Gallery, etc, filters! This is a random behavior but is annoying: despite the tool chosen, the hand tool remains selected and I can do not nothing until I restart the machine. I would appreciate any direction.

Hi all, after many tests, I solved my problem updating the driver of my Wacom IntuosPro from version 6.3.18-4 to 6.3.19-10. Until now all is working perfectly. I hope this information is useful.

Although I updated the Wacom Version the problem is reoccurring. Does anyone have another solution than restarting the whole computer every time the Liquify tool gets stuck in hand mode?
I have a mac OS sierra Version10.12.3.

I once noticed that the liquify tool switched to the hand tool when I accidentally pressed the buttons on my pen, so I disabled the functions of the buttons in my pen, and restarted my iMac. so far the liquify tool has been working fine.

I hope this helps :)

Thank you for your reply! Sadly even after disabeling the pen buttons, it worked for a moment and then got stuck again.. l was hopeful that the wacom update might solve the problem but didn't either..
still open for suggestions!
