Fuzzy and enormous first stroke

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

I've finally able to catch redhanded this elusive bug I've been experiencing. Sadly I'm not exactly sure how to trigger it, only hints.

After a pause, a tool change, a macOS change of focus… and then back to the paint brush, the first stroke has a 100 % smoothness and it's bigger than the selected brush can ever be. But it only happens sometimes.

I tried uploading it here as a gif, but anyway here's the video that shows the bug in action: https://youtu.be/tkmUt1QsVUk.

I feel like there's a delay between the 'the user is drawing a line that goes this way' signal and the 'this is the pressure he/she's inputing' signal, so Pixelmator Pro uses an 'ALL THE THINGS' meme approach for the missing info (or is it an 'Up to eleven' one?) . Not showing in the video but if I keep drawing the second signal finally arrives and everything goes back to normal –even while drawing the same stroke that started bugged–.

Extra info:

- iMac 21,5 - 2019

- Big Sur 11.2.2

- Pixelmator Pro 2.0.5

Thanks for the report! Good catch for sure, we'll dig deeper into this and, hopefully, we can reproduce it. If not, we'll get back to you.
