Have this issue in Photoshop for a while now where the pen tool add additional lines when creating paths in Photoshop, and also not changing when deleting/converting into a selection - can anyone show me how to change this back to the original pen tool pathing? I have included a video to better illustrate what I mean.
Hi! What verson of Photoshop are you using?
It looks like you are using the Curvature Pen tool (The second one from the top, and from what you noted abouve, I think you are looking for the Pen tool (Top one).
Let us know if that fixes the issue,
Hi Michelle, I checked and it was not on Curvature Pen tool.
Thanks for the feedback! Have you tried resetting the Pen tool?
Make sure the Pen tool is selected and then in the Options bar choose the tool option. From the little gear on the right of the drop down menu, select Reset tool. Here is a screen shot. Let me know if that fixes the issue?
I tried both the Reset Tool and Reset All Tools to no avail - there were some tool presets which I hadn't seen before which I also reset but still all the same sadly
I've managed to fix it - I noticed on my work machine that my path options were greyed out so I searched on the forums and reset my preferences, and now it is back to normal! For my own clarity, why does the path options grey itself out; is there any particular reason for this?
Same issue with mine. How did you fix it?
I went to Edit > Preferences > General > Reset preferences on Quit, and that brought back the path options and the pen tool was regular again, hope this helps
