Dragging paths to straight angles?

Here's a question that has been bugging me for a while, and I'm sure the solution is super easy, but I cannot seem to find it on google:


When modifying a pre-existing shape by dragging an anchor point, the paths refuse to stay straight/right-angled (see image below, red lines). Even when I line it up beautifully and cannot see any hicks in the line, they become crooked the moment I let go of the anchor point. Certainly the shift key won't help. Is it something I need to change in my settings? 'Snap to point' doesn't do anything either, obviously. Smart guides are on too.


Thanks for making my life a little less miserable! :)

    ALWAYS state what ersion yoiu are using.


    Make sure the infernal SnapToPixelGrid feature is off.


    See the documentation on how to use Smart Guides.


    See the documentation on how to align Anchor Points.
