  1. I should probably mention that I do about two thirds of my work "in the field" on a laptop using a trackpad because no desk is available, which makes the multi-click interface for adjusting lines much more difficult than if I was on my PC with a normal mouse and keyboard.
  2. @Sean P Thanks for the update and the information. As @Jowday mentioned this new feature is adding a lot of time to my projects requiring multiple clicks and/or button presses to acomplish the same task I could easily do on the fly in 1.6.
  3. @Jowday Thank you very much for confirming the problem and submitting the bug report. It's nice to have confirmation of the change and hopefully this is just a bug and not an intended change as I initially assumed. :)
  4. firstdefense, unfortunately that doesn't seem to make any difference for me on any of my systems. Peter Petrenko, I don't think that is really relevant to my complaint. My issue is specifically with a change in functionality of the pen tool.
  5. Hey BobDaubs, Thanks for the reply, and that is a bit faster of a workaround than what i was using, but it still requires twice the clicks that it did in 1.6 and the "ctrl-click then click-and-drag" it gets awful fiddly, and using that method I can't adjust curves on the fly as I'm drawing.
  6. @Jowday Sorry, I am unfamiliar with Gravit so I can't compare; but I think you might be right that the "Add new curves to existing curves" is always on when using the pen tool.Thanks, I wasn't sure what was causing the behavior. One interesting thing is that after some more experimentation I found if I close off a shape the start/end point can still be manipulated with the pen tool just in 1.6 - it is only the points in between that have the issue.
  7. I apologize if I was not clear. In 1.6 If I drew the shape I posted above there was no need to switch to the node tool to adjust the curve; all I had to do was click on the point with the pen tool and drag, and then my shape would be curved. It was a simple, quick, and direct method that didn't require switching tools. Now I have to switch to the node tool click on the point I want to adjust, then switch back to the pen tool before I can curve through that point. It takes about 3x as long as it did before and requires a lot more effort to acomplish the same task.
  8. The update and changes to how the pen tool works have rendered it almost completely unusable for me. The way I work is to draw out a shape quickly with the pen tool, as seen in the bird I have attached, and then I use the pen tool on the node to quickly round the shape out. Now, in order to accomplish a task I could do easily with a single brush, I have to click on each and every node I want to use the pen tool on to reshape and the process takes twice as long at minimum. I know there are cool new ways to hold down the mouse button to pre-draw curves but I don't think like that. I can't pre-pl
