I have a Yiynova MVP20U+RH Full HD Tablet Monitor and when I first open photoshop cc it works fine until I move the pen away from the screen for too long or switch to using a mouse. When I go back to draw with my pen I can only draw straight lines with the brush tool. It still recognizes pen pressure and will erase if I switch to the eraser tool but only in straight lines.

I am running Windows 7 and have Photoshop CC 2015

Have you tried using a mouse or a different tablet?
I haven't heard of anyone else having that problem, but it does sound a lot like a tablet driver bug. (Photoshop gets the location information from the OS, regardless of the source)

Hi Paige - I just wanted you to know that I am having the same issue. I don't know that it is dependent on the version of Photoshop you have, or even the version of Windows. I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, and currently use CS6.

Then it is almost certainly tied to the tablet driver software -- contact the tablet maker for updates.
