First of all—I am NOT dragging the mouse.
I am single-clicking on the path the way you are supposed to to add a single corner point—and instead bezier handles automatically keep appearing.
I then have to use the conversion tool before I can use the point.
How can I add an anchor point to a path without getting the handles? Thank you.
What version of Photoshop are you using and have you tried resetting the pen tools and if that didn't work resetting your Photoshop preferences.
I am using CS5, 12.0.4 for 64-bit machine.
Yes, I've reset the pen tool and also a total preferences reset.
