In Photoshop CC 2018 the brush selection UI is really unresponsive. Previously Photoshop versions I could open the Brush tool with my Wacom pen button and select a brush without hardly looking at the brush palette and it would select it always. Now, very often it doesnt actually select it. I would say almost half the time I click a brush (I have the small brush tip icon look) it doesn't change. This causes huge issues for a painting workflow and I end up having to paint undo all the time or take a closer look that I actually get the new brush before starting to paint.

Hey Everyone!

I am happy to announce that this issue should be resolved in the release of Photoshop that just went live, 19.1. Please open your Creative Cloud desktop app, update Photoshop and try it out!
