In Pixelmator Original, drawing a freeform shape with the Freeform Pen Tool was very intuitive - never adding more points than necessary to realize the shape you were drawing.



In Pixelmator Pro, drawing a freeform shape at a moderate pace produces a shape with far too many points to successfully edit in a timely fashion. As one slows down to end a shape by completing and closing that shape - a myriad of points are added near that closing point - making point deletion absolutely necessary.

Is there a way to control the number of points that are placed when using the Freeform Pen Tool?



Thanks,
