Photoshop CC: Bug using Line Tool with 1 pixel line (incomplete path)

In Photoshop CC, when I use the line tool to create a 1px line, it creates a vector path that looks complete but actually isn't. One of the corners is unconnected and it is an incomplete path.

This is a pain in the butt because with the new direct selection of anchor points, there is a lot of clicking of individual anchor points. When the one isnt connected, it requires a second action to get that line to move or look correct.

I figured that this was not desired functionality as It does not happen when using the rectangle tool.

I am not sure if this has been reported here or what, (I assume so) but I figured I would post it up here because it is annoying me very much :) Fix plz?!

Thanks,
-Andrew

Hmm, yeah, I don't think I've seen that one reported before.

Excellent. I'm happy to contribute, then.

Any luck replicating this on your end? I have 2 computers / accounts that this is happening on, so I figured it wasn't a setting or isolated incident.

I can reproduce this in Photoshop 14.1.2. I've asked some of our QE and managers to investigate further.

The line tool in Photoshop CC draws a line that has an incomplete path and 5 points instead of 4.


Draw out a line with the line tool and you'll notice that the end of the line where you 1st clicked your mouse down, will have 3 points instead of 2 and the path is incomplete. This has been like this for quite some time now and I'm surprised no-one has picked up on it.

Photoshop CC: Line tool always creates open vector shapes with 5 control points.


On shapes I draw with the line tool one corner is always made up of two overlapping, non-connecting control points. This makes them a bit awkward to modify...

This should be fixed in the current Creative Cloud release.
