How do I erase in a straight line?
When I am using the erase tool Eraser and smudge tool Smudge,
sometimes I want to proceed in a straight line. How do you do this? My lines are crooked. Confused

Click at beginning of the line, hold the shift key down, click at the end of the line. Works with the appropriate tools, paint, pencil, eraser, clone, smudge...

Shift+ctrl restricts the line to 15 deg increments from vertical/horizontal
