Photoshop CC version 14.1.2. Polygonal Lasso Tool only lets me set 4 to 5 points before it closes automatically. I am using a Wacom tablet. Never had this problem before with earlier versions. Does it with my crappy mouse too, but not as bad. Settings issue? Or a bug. Please let me know! I spend a lot of time masking out photos and this has screwed with my workflow big time. Thanks

What OS version are you using?
And have you updated the wacom tablet driver?

10.9 and the most current version for my pad which is old -
Intous3. Seems the problem is with the pad. Not nearly as bad with my mouse, but sometimes it does it as well. While adding points, all of the sudden my selection disappears, and even if I try to step back one point, the mask closes automatically.

Weird only happened since I went from CS5.5 to CC.

If you have any other suggestions I am willing to try! Reset prefs?
thanks for your quick response

Resetting prefs might help - but Wacom is having a number of driver problems on 10.9, in addition to a number of Apple bugs in 10.9.
