Anchor Points Flat Instead of Sharp Points
When I draw a point with the pen tool, sometimes it gives me a nice sharp point, and other times it flattens it like a bad military haircut. If I wanted it flat I'd select the Bevel Join. Instead it takes me several minutes of fiddling with the anchor point angles to get the points, often giving me a curve that I didn't want, and wasting valuable time. It seems to be even worse than usual since the latest update (22.0.0).

Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

A sharp point is drawn with only click using pen tool. A pen tool with slight drag flattens.
Workaround for the problem . Select all the anchors with problem using direct selection tool with marquee selection or shift click anchor points , and click "Convert selected anchor points to corner" button present in properties panel / control panel.
Thanks and Regards
