Professional for about 20 years here. Just wanted to add my voice to the growing list of people disgusted by the removal of the line tool's pixel mode. It strengthens my point that software always reaches a peak, after which it only declines until it's replaced by a competitor. Photoshop reached its peak about 5 years ago and gets more unstable with every version and now is starting to get rid of useful features at no benefit.

First off: This is a user Forum, so you are not really addressing Adobe here, even though some Adobe employees thankfully have been dropping by.

If you want to have your »voice« heard by Adoeb personnel add your sote to a Bug Report: 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/photoshop/photoshop-pixel-line-tool-2021/5fd31d7cb763bd...

 

Second: The change in question is 

• on the one hand indeed strange, probably unintended, but 

• on the other hand not really that big of a deal. 

And if you have been using Photoshop that long you should be able to figure out the work-around (set the Tool to »Shape« and set a non-inside Stroke in the Options Panel).

Adobe got enough complaints about this that they're working on bringing back the pixel mode.

150 posts seems pretty good, but a couple more won’t hurt the issue either. 

Edit: It seems strange that the report only has 17 likes, though.
