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!!!
Thanks @kiddac and to @jane-e for confirming, will pass this on to the team to look into.
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
This is on 2 different machines using latest photoshop.My home machine and also my office work machine.
I also uninstalled photoshop and reinstalled.I have also just tried reseting preferences and still get the same result.
I have also unplugged my wireless mouse and tried a wired mouse. Same issue. So its not my mouse causing it
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
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.
Thank you @CoryShubert
Same bug, every update breaks something that was working before, incredible! In our company, such programmers will be fired directly.
this still hasn't been fixed in 24.2 release. Can you fix this mess please.
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.
