Automatical straigh line drawing while switching to brush.
Hello i got a super annoying problem, when i paint, and do some erasing or some other stuff and then switch to Brush to paint again Painter often automatically switches the drawing mode to point and click straight line drawing mode. This is super annoying as you have to undo your stroke and unclick it. It happens like 2-3 times per minute.

Not heard of anyone with that particular problem before (I guess your not hitting V by mistake). The only thing I can think of to try is to reset your workspace incase it's got corrupted. I've had other tools got buggy before. Sometimes switching to the default workspace and back to your own saved one works (if you've actually created a new one - sometimes this doesn't help). Otherwise, save your workspace, plus save everything (palettes, colours, papers etc). Then restart Painter holding down the shift key while it starts and select reset. See if the same thing happens on the default reset workspace. You can sometimes reimport your old workspace and the bug has gone away. But sometimes it will return.
If you still have the problem on the reset workspace I'm really not sure what's going on. Is there something you do that always makes this action occur?
Hey thanks for the reply, i'm just hitting B as for Brush, nothing more.
I will try to reset everything and see if that helps. I like Painter a lot but all those bugs/errors make me feel like this program is crippled, thus making me go back to Photoshop instantly after a series of issues. But when i force myself to continue i can eventually come up with something nice :]
