I'm using Photoshop CC 2015, and for some reason now whenever I draw a shape, it acts like the option key is pressed. And it works normally when I press the option key.

Somehow the option key is toggled, if you will. What could be the reason?

Edit: This is only when I'm drawing a rectangle apparently, it works fine with other shapes.

I think You Checked the "From center" Button in the Settings of Rectangle tool.

Unchecked that "From center" button and your rectangle tool Will work Fine.
