In the Options bar, set the mode to Shape, Fill to None, and Stroke to White. Set the Stroke Weight to 15px. 3. Draw triangle: Click 3 points to define the area of the triangle.

As of 6/17/19 you have to set the Brush tool to "Subtract" mode. This can be done next to the brush sizes.

so is it necessary to use the pen tool to get the desired effect? Cause I've always wondered why it won't work if you use the shape tool

When I place the anchors, the lines that it makes don’t thicken, they just stay really tiny thin lines, I’ve tried making the pixel width larger doesn’t work

The "Zoom by drag" of my Photoshop cc 2018 has stopped working, I can not even activate it ... can you solve this problem?
Luis (10 months ago)
Same, idk if they updated something but it's really annoying cause now I have to use the dash key - to zoom out and it wastes a lot of time working tbh.
