Pen tool behaviour I find a bit odd

May 20, 2013 3:31 AM

I don't know if this is something you can change or just the way things are.

 

you're drawing a path, and you have the black arrow as your [ctrl] modifier, but you want the white arrow, so you switch to it, then switch back to pen and carry on drawing. but the pen wants to start a new path because you've switched tools. or you want to toggle smart guides mid path, same deal. this seems a bit off to me, so i'm wondering if there's something I've set wrong. the pen tool in PS doesn't seem to mind you switching selection tools: as long as the path you were on is unmolested, it picks up from the anchor point it left off.
