Photoshop 2018: Can't call up HUD, using Wacom pen button (Windows)

I'm using a Wacom Cintiq 24HD with PS 2018. The Wacom driver is the latest (at time of writing) and I just updated PS with the 19.0.1 patch. The HUD color picker is not showing up anymore with the shortcut ctl-alt-shift-right click when the 'right click' is assigned to the Wacom Pen button. It works when I use my mouse's right click, but I do not use my mouse for my artwork.

I am not sure if this is a Adobe or Wacom issue, it would be nice if it were possible to assign some other combo to call up the HUD at least.

Did you find a solution for this? I've tried reinstalling drivers, using different pens, versions of photoshop etc etc. But I can't seem to get it to work.

Try this: go into Wacom Tablet Preferences and set the pen button to Keyboard > Modifier... (check Ctrl, Left Alt, Shift, Right).  Does that work for you?
