Brush pressure and double-click zoom

Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

1、The pressure feeling of the painting tool pen does not match the thickness of the actually drawn lines

When my pen touches the screen, no matter whether the pressure is high or low, the writing changes from thin to thick, rather than getting results based on the pressure. This is unreasonable. And when I slowly reduced the pressure and lifted the pen, the lines would suddenly break off inexplicably and would not become the thinnest. This situation does not appear on other software, and the Wacom driver problem can basically be ruled out.

Brush parameters: Hard Basic 30px (Advanced Settings>Pressure>Size by Pressure:100%)

This is a very serious problem, like a bug. I have feedback before, but it has not received much attention (maybe because I put it in the feature suggestion). Many people are troubled by the same problem, and it has not been solved so far.

Feedback you can refer to:

Pixelmator Pro Versions: 2.3.4 Abracadabra
Mac mini (M1, 2020) 8GB
Mac OS Version: Monterey 12.0.1
Wacom Cintiq Pro 13
Wacom Driver Version: 6.3.45-2

2、It is very easy to trigger double-tap to zoom when you press and hold the space button to move the canvas

When you press and hold the space button to move the canvas, if the frequency is too fast, it will trigger double-click to zoom, which is very torturous. Hope to provide options to close or adjust the click interval.

I tried the old Pixelmator classic, and there was no inconsistency between pen pressure and lines. This is ridiculous. This is a very basic function. I hope the Pixelmator team can pay attention to this problem and solve it first

Good news, nioone! After a little bit of digging around, we think we've found a potential solution for this issue you've reported. If you'd shoot us a quick email at support@pixelmator.com, we could send you a Pixelmator Pro beta with this fix. We'd really appreciate it if you could give it a try and let us know if painting works any better for you.

Thanks! We've sent you the beta.
Tried the beta version and the problem persists. It may be that I used the translation tool and did not express it clearly. I made an intuitive comparison chart as follows:

And there is also the problem that the tail will not be too thin to the thinnest Image
A new problem similar to the ink spitting of a pen also appeared

I hope the pixelmator team will work harder to solve the problem

Thanks for taking the time to test the beta and for sharing your feedback! Helps us a lot. It's OK, your report is actually perfect and we understand the issue but it turns out it's more complex than we originally thought. While we did notice improvement testing this internally, it seems like the fix didn't do much for external testers (possibly using different setups). For now, it looks like we'll need to take our time with this bug and do a more thorough revision of the painting engine.

Yes, the brush engine really needs a thorough improvement, and it's really worth waiting. I also have a suggestion here. Let each brush have thickness feedback on the pressure feeling by default. There is no need to set it separately for each brush. This is more in line with the intuition of people who use brush tools for the first time.
