Shape icon with dropdown menu still available in new Rectangle/Ellipse tool
edited August 2016
I noticed that the shape icon is still available when using the new Rectangle and Ellipse tool, I assume this is a bug and that it shouldn't be there, because it doesn't do anything.
Could you please confirm this
There is a difference between stroking the shape with a square or round brush though (with a brush size > 1). The rectangle tool defaults to the square since then you get sharp corners, while the ellipse tool defaults to round to get a more uniform line around the shape. Not sure if it's that common to want a rectangle with round corners or an ellipse drawn with a square brush, but I left it in since I can think of some use cases at least.
Ahh yeah I can see that, I only tried with 1 pixel brush size... not sure what I was expecting...
There are definitely use cases, you should maybe rename it though, calling it Corner or something, with a sharp and a rounded one. Another application I use has these kind of icons for such purpose, would make it a bit easier to understand.
