The Photoshop Options bar (the bar above the document window) uses a sticky state—which means it will remember forever when you change one of the options. Why don't you try resetting the tool (right click the Pen icon at the far left of the Options bar) and try again. I regularly reset all my tools.
Thanks Barb! That did the trick. I thought I had reset all the options to the same (default) options on my PC but I guess I missed one. It's working now.
Blessings to you,
Glad to hear that things are back to working as they should. I think I mentioned this, but I routinely reset my tools for that exact reason. I have my students reset their tools as the beginning of class as well, because it eliminates time spent troubleshooting when I have a big group.
