Can you please fix this strange behaviour in later releases. 
Currently using 24.1.1 release. 

Create a rectangle using the rectangle tool.

click delete anchor point. Presuming I would be old behaviour of just removing the anchor point. 
Get crazy bezier curve going on instead. WHY!!!

Hi,

 

I cannot reproduce this issue on my side, the deleted anchor point has an expected result, as shown on my screenshot.

Could be a corrupted preference setting, maybe you can reset the preference and try again in a new PSD ?

My spec: PS 24.1.1 - Win10 - 5900X - RTX 3070 - 64GB

Rds,

I can't reproduce it here either using Photoshop v24.1.1 on Windows 11 v22H2

 

Can you create a short screen video showing your full screen and the exact steps - just in case we are missing some subtle difference

 

Dave

 

Edit : Scratch that - I can reproduce it. If I use the pen tool and just click to delete I get the beziers. I was using the direct selection tool (white arrow) when I tested previously. It is the same going back to v22.

I tested on both my Windows laptop and iMac. I can reproduce in on Windows, but it works as expected on macOS.

Same bug, every update breaks something that was working before, incredible! In our company, such programmers will be fired directly.

In fact I have just found my own solution to this issue. 

The problem. Draw a shape. i.e Rectangle. Click Delete anchor point tool. Shape adds a stupid bezier curve that is no use to any one. 

The solution. Draw a shape. i.e Rectangle. Select either Path selection tool, or direct selection tool. AND THEN MAKE SURE... Contstrain Path Dragging IS checked.

hi, I found a better solution,no need to check "Contstrain Path Dragging", just check "Don't show again" when the dialog box pops up, and then this problem is completely solved. I guess Adobe will never fix this little bug.

Nick thats a whole different problem. Try and transform a shape, and before you finish transforming that stupid box pops up and finishes your transform. That checking constraint path dragging fixes that horrendous bug too.
