Straight lines created by the brush tool do not always work in version 21.1.  Click + Hold Shift + Drag does not work at all, resulting in wobbly lines.  Hold shift + Click + Drag only works half of the time.  This happens with both mouse and Wacom tablet.  Resetting tools, preferences, and Wacom preferences does not solve it.  Dialing back to 21.0.3 fixes the issue.

What has changed is that Shift used to work both before and after you start to draw the line. Now it works only if pressed before drawing. It really disturbs the workflow of painting. I hope the change will be rolled back.
