Oke I have this stupid question, but some might know the answer..
I need to make some lines in a standard 2 point perspective grid, and the lines should go from vanish point A trough a point called B and end in a point called C.
I don't know where C will be at the moment but I know for sure where B will be.
So if I with a normal brush click on point A and shift click on point B I will get a straight line, but only between those two points.
What I really need is to make that line longer so I can attach a point C somewhere down that line. This can of course be done with the line tool, where I would drag the line as long as I wanted and make sure it intersected point B - but how is this done without using linetool and just a brush?
I tried this way - click on point A, shift click on point B, continue to hold down shift and drag the brush further, but that resulted in a correct line from A to B, but from B it just went horizontal straight (I knew that would happen, but I hoped )
Click to resize...
have you considered using the photoshop path tools? After you do the line yo could stroke it with the brush tool settings.

I use the line tool (which is really the shape tool) for perspective lines like this, because I can keep modifying them as I go (changing end points, colors, etc.).
I know there are other ways to do this..
But on really large images 6000px x something, it isn't really that usefull to start adding shapes and layers, and this is where a simple brush shortcut would be handy...
I am affraid this doesn't exist though, so I will return to the old way, as you mentioned.
