Updated to the latest OSX Mojave, and now the first brush stroke after picking a color(Option hotkey pressed and released before painting) on the canvas is not working properly, it does a straight line as if Shift was held down.

The problem was there before i updated to 20.0.1 and only had updated to Mojave 

Tested in Photoshop 18 and Autodesk sketchbook, no problem. 

Hope there is a fix for it soon.

Hi Jesper,

I can repro the problem. Thanks for raising it.  Here's a temporary workaround until we fix it - turn Rulers off.   With Rulers off, you shouldn't run into this.  Let me know if you still do.
