I want to place lines and 'corners' on a poster I created to accentuate the subject. I can make the lines, but they disappear when presing the return button (Mac). How do I keep them from disa
Thanks Jane, but still after making a line, it disappears. I have read here that many people are having the smae problem.
If you press Command-Y or View > Outline, do you see the line in outline view?
Sorry, I was thinking about Illustrator and this is the Photoshop forum.
In Photoshop pressing return will delete the line. That is normal. There's no need to press return when drawing a line. In the Options bar, you can choose Path, Shape, or Pixels. If you choose Pixels, pressing return will not delete the line, but on the other hand, the line will be bitmap instead of vector.
Which tool are you using to draw the lines and which setting are you choosing in the Options bar?
The pixel option is greyed out..not an option.
Pixels was disabled for the line tool in the newest version of Photoshop.
Check your alignment in "Stroke Options." If it is set to inside (the top setting) your stroke will not show.
Stroke options? Where is that option?
Ensure that drawing mode is set to Shape (first arrow from the left on screenshot) then click where second arrow is pointing and lastly expand first drop down list (third bottom most arrow) and change to second or third option.
Thanks, Bojan. This has been plaguing me for months!
This also DOES NOT WORK. I draw a line or a box, and it dissapears. It'n on the top layer. All settings are as shown. Driving me bonkers. I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS,
Have you tried resetting the tool?
Right click on the tool icon in the Options bar.
Do you have a color chosen for the tool?
I reset the line tool. I have a color chosen. It is on the top layer. All settings are as shown. I can draw ONE line. When I try to draw the second line, the first line disappears. When I try to draw the third line, the second line disappears, and so one. I apparently can only have one line. What is going on????
I haven't watched it closely, but I first thought the vid selected the middle icon, and saw the answer mentioning "top," but I now see he says not to use top... 😉
I've just posted this in case it was about a different problem, as I still see cries for "HELP" after some of the solutions...
