[Fixed] Drawing straight line with brush or pixel tool via (shift+drag) creates random diagonal line connected to origin of stroke. Photo and Designer.

Recommended Posts

In the attached image the diagonal strokes connected to the straight strokes appear when I draw a straight line with the pixel tool. it happens with the brush tool as well. The same bug occurs in both Photo and Designer (in pixel persona).

Still having the same problem in Designer 1.7 beta. Now the unwanted lines are always connected to the end of the last line drawn.

I think you may need to press Esc (Escape) to terminate one line before starting the next one.

Just tried it and got the same result still. Also tried getting rid of all selections before drawing a new line. Also, the initial stroke, before I've done anything else in the document, also gets a random line connected to its origin.

But this is not fixed... it's been like this for ages in both AD and AP and still is and it's terribly annoying. Can't paint straight lines fast. Just let me know if this is supposed to work like this, or if I am missing something and I think it should work as Photoshop does. I expect it to always create straight lines when pressing Shift while painting. Thanks
