Hiya all, just a little question here...
You know in photoshop, if you have pasted something, and are trying to place it, or if you are even just using the brush tool, do you ever find that the edges sucks the pen in? It does get quite annoying sometimes...
I dont suppose there is anyway this can be turned off is there?

huh? I don't understand the problem. What's up with the black line?:hmm:

The problem is (was) Snap to > Bounds.
The diagonal part is a regular stroke going down and to the left.
All of a sudden, it gets "sucked" to the document boundary.
That's why the strokes goes horizontal for a bit and then straight down the side.
Snap to Bounds has uses, but very annoying when painting.
