Using the pen tool to create opacity mask almost always actives rotate function!

I'm trying to use the pen tool and create a opacity mask. Yet, while attempting to draw the mask in the program monitor, almost every single time, as I click the pen tool to add the point, it turns into the rotate tool and shifts the mask to a new rotation orientation.

I would do anything to permanently shut off the rotate function, or at least have it active only if I hit a key on the keyboard. I'm finding this to be extremely difficult to use as is.

I have played around trying to figure out what triggers it the rotate function, but I cannot figure out any pattern. Nothing seems to override it, either. It seems like Premiere is extremely concerned that I might want to rotate my entire mask, rather than actually draw it in the first place.

Using 2017 Premiere Pro

Thanks!

i have the same complaint. i usually magnify the image in the program monitor to avoid the problem. like go to +100 or +150 etc.

Same problem here. I either zoom in on the program monitor or adjust the mask when it's "finished" (dragging/adding points seems not to activate the rotation as easily.)
