I am trying to draw a straight line using the line tool, but when I hold down the shift button to draw a straight horizontal line it draws it a an angle. vertical line will go straights, but not the horizontal. I also noticed that the cursor now has an has a horizontal arrow with a vertical line at the end of it in the bottom right corner of the cursor when the line tool or shape tool is used. I went into prefrences and checked the constrain angle but it is set at 0 so I am not sure what to do or what happened. It was working fine and then all of a sudden this happened. Is there a button I may have hit that would cause this? how do I get it to draw straight lines again? I just noticed it wont draw 45 degree angles either. it sticks to angles a few degrees above and below horizontal.
I wasnt. But I just clicked on the perspective grid and now it seems to be working fine. Thank you!! I think what happened is I was trying to type in a layer named called "Photo #" and I started typing before the layer window was open. Just tryed typing that again without the layer window and it did the same thing. Thanks for your help.
