Hello Everyone, my first post in this forum, I didn't find any discussion on this question before.

 

Question: Is there a way to personalize the default inputs of the Pen Tool (Left click, Right click and modifiers such as Crtl/Command/Alt keys) ?

 

I'm asking it because my default Mouse Left Button, when hovering over an existing Path anchor, would - oddly - delete the anchor (image 1 - pen symbol with minus sign).

 

I would like to default my Left Mouse Button to move the anchor, not delete it, which makes more sense to me and is also the default behavior described at Adobe documentation (image 2).

 

obs:

- to move any given anchor, I must hold Ctrl/Command key + Left Click.

- to convert smooth to corner point, and vice-versa, I must hold Alt key + Left Click.

 

Any help is welcome, thanks everyone!
