I never want to use the line tool to create a shape or a path. I constantly use it as a straight line tool for pixels only. Suddenly it seems that this is a greyed out unselectable option. 

Is there any way to use the line tool for pixel creation only? I do not want to go through paths or shape tools to eventually create pixels. I only want to use the line tool for creating pixels.

Hi @Bruce D Walters:

 

WHY??? Restore this NOW

This is a user-to-user forum. We have no more control over Adobe's decisions than you do. To file a feature request, please use https://feedback.photoshop.com/.

 

In the meantime, if you draw a line as a path, and stroke the path, you will get the same result (pixels). Happy to share more details, if this interests you or @Dylan15A9.

Yes, this works, but, it adds extra steps to a really basic tool. Changing things for change sake makes no sense to me. I just want to create a line without faffing around with strokes etc.

I agree - this was a bad change to the latest update...I used the line tool for creating pixel lines all the time, now it is more burdensome.  Worst change since removing the shortcut for the blending tool.

Ok, I'll bite. how do I "stroke the path?" I'm a cartoonist who is dumb at learning new systems, or I would have switched to Clip Studio long ago. I use the line tool to draw perspective grids, which means I need to be able to rasterize clusters of lines, and move them around after I make them.

Stroking the Path on the path or outside the path brakes the  line tool's arrowheads  throws them off Target. If stroked inside the Arrowheads remain on target but there is no line stroke for there is no inside of a two point line path.  For Adobe removed line weight to make 4 point  line paths that can be filled and stroked inside.  Line weight is required for proper operation of the line tool.
