just updated photoshop to v20 and discovered that i can not use the brush tool with my wacom stylus CTH-490.

The brush tool is selected and works fine with my mouse but when i use the wacom stylus, it becomes an eyedropper, even though the brush tool is still selected (See attached image)

As far as I can tell, the other tools work properly. But i can not use the brush tool with my stylus. It was working 100% fine before the latest update.

What OS? That looks like the Alt/Opt key thinks it is down.
