(Pixelmator Pro 1.0.8 on macOS 10.13.3)

Converting a shape to pixels moves the shape 1 pixel up.

To reproduce:
Create a new image.
Insert a rectangle.
Place guides on the rectangle's edges.
Convert the rectangle to pixels.
- Note that the rectangle is 1 pixel above the top guide.

I'm having a hard time reproducing this. Can you give us by any chance your mac specs? Maybe it is something hardware related.

I've done some testing and have found that any rectangle that is located at the crossing of an even number of pixels will not move.

Any rectangle that is on an odd number of pixels (x, y, or both) will move left, up, or up and left to move it onto an even number of pixels.

I hope this helps you reproduce it. Your help is appreciated.

Looks like you're absolutely right, the shapes shift when their position is at an odd, rather than an even number of pixels (on either the X or Y axis or both). Logged!
