Tool problems after update
Recently i've been having a lot of problems using Clip Studio Paint, the issues began after I updated to the latest wacom driver, I normally try to avoid updating as this seems to happen every time I do.
Essentially it changes tool modes for no reason, for example I will be in pen or brush mode and it will switch to move mode. So whilst I’m in the middle of creating a line it will suddenly change layers and move that layer. or it will switch to zoom mode. If i create folders for layers it will open up the layer and select it for me.
Also if i need to switch to hand mode to quickly move to another part of the drawing without zooming out, it doesn’t register when i press the hot key, unless i completely move the pen away from the tablet and wait for the symbol to appear and even then is temper-mental, this has made the program unusable.
I know its not a computer problem as I get no issues in any other programs I use, to be honest it was working perfectly until I got the latest wacom driver update. and updated to my safari security.
My Computer is aMacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015),2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 gb memory
and i have the latest CSP 1.5.4
Thank you very much, I would really appreciate your help.

What Wacom device are you using and what driver? I've had lot's of problems with my Cintiq 27 Touch if I ever open an on-screen or radial menu. Basically, when you close it, it leaves a phantom invisible menu behind, and you can trigger the command that were there, causing weird phantom events. If I restart and never use the onscreen menus it works fine. This has been a long time Wacom problem that they don't seem able to fix. It's been confirmed with other users.
I was aslo having general stroke problems with newest Wacom driver, but they had me downgrade to a previous version and that issue went away.. The driver I'm using now is 6.3.15-3.
Ah forgot to mention that, my bad. Its a cintiq13HD and Like I mentioned in the OP I have the latest driver (6.3.17-5).
I had lag issues with it before I got the latest CSP update but once i updated and its been perfect, up until now.
I don't use any wacom hot key buttons as, like you i found out none of them work, I don't really mind that because i just use the keyboard for shortcuts.
I've also tried several previous drivers, to see if it would fix the problem unfortunately without success.
Thanks for the speedy reply.

You could try reinitializing your tools (or the whole program) by holding down shift when you launch and selecting the items you want to reset. I was having strange problems once and did this (making a copy of my settings folder first (documents/CELSYS_EN). Strange behavior resolved, and then I copied back settings in batches until the problem started again. In my case it was a corrupted tool file from a brush I imported. If you don't have a lot of custom tools or shortcuts, you can just reinitialize and not worry about adding things back in.
Wow it worked! , I reinitialised everything and its running smooth as butter now. Thank you so much! Now that you mention it I did import a brush around the same time I updated so, That most likely was the culprit, again thanks a lot, you have been a massive help :)
