Lineweights unstable thickness


#1

Hi Again,

the performance of print display is confusing. I really want it to be great but the lineweights shift all over the place as you zoom in and out.

Yeah, I guess the weights need to shift in pixel increments and at smaller sizes (zoomed out) will paint according to how lined up each one is with a row of screen pixels- I assume this is what we’re seeing here, anyway, let’s ask @stevebaer, my guess is he’ll have a better idea…?

Yep, that looks like something we can definitely improve. I think you’re right @pascal that this looks like an effect when the curves get down to single pixel width and the curve happens to lie on pixel boundaries. Let’s throw this on the bugtracker for something for me to work on. I don’t have great access where I’m at right now otherwise I would create the bug myself.

@stevebaer @pascal Thanks guys, if the preview of thicknesses could be dialed we could stay even further away from illustrator.
