    1px pencil tool in CS6 is 3px

    ToodlesMcGee

      Working in PS CS6.  I want to use the pencil tool at 1px, and I've changed my settings accordingly (even typed it in to be sure) but the minumum size it will actually go is 3px.

       

      To be clear, the size is set to 1px, but when you zoom all the way in so that the individual pixels are visible, the pencil is a 3px x 3px square and will not go smaller.

       

      The brush tool does not behave this way, and I would use it instead but for this project I need the square precision of the pencil. I'm working in a 72dpi RGB document. I do not have this issue in CS5.

       

      Has anyone else seen this behavior? What can be done to fix it?
