ctrl+Shift+Draw line not working anymore

Recommended Posts

Not sure what happened, was using control+shift+draw line to draw a straight line that branched out in both directions equal distance from the starting point and now this feature/shortcut will not work. The same can be said with the same shortcut that allows you to draw a circle with the middle being the start point. Not sure if anybody else has run into this issue, not a huge problem but definitely a shortcut I was using for work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

The the key to choose those modes was changed to alt.

Line tool: alt = draw from center, alt-shift = draw from center with 15 degree angles.

Shape tool: alt = draw from center, alt-shift = draw from center, constrain aspect ratio.

See the release notes. Also, the status bar.

And, of course, see the Documentation:

For example:

https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ShapeTools.html  (see Alt Modifier Key and Shift & Alt Modifier Keys)
