Paint 45 Degree Angle with Brush Tool

This is an easy little trick I just learned. Let’s say you are painting with the Brush tool and need to make a 45 degree line. It’s very easy. Click on the beginning of the line with the Brush tool and hold down the Shift key. While holding down the Shift key, click on the end point of your line. Voila- a perfect 45 degree brush stroke.
