Adjusting pressure sensitivity?

Using my Apple Pencil, every line I make is various sizes and various shades of grey. If I want a standard full-black line at the exact pixel width I specified, I have to press way too hard. Or draw with my finger instead, as pressure sensitivity does not effect that, but drawing with one’s finger obviously leads to a far cruder image and more difficult experience than simply using the pencil.

Is there any way to adjust a brush’s pressure sensitivity? Or, if nothing else, simply toggle it off completely so I can have full-black uniform-thickness lines?

This is really the only thing turning me off of using Pixelmator as my primary drawing app.

Thank you!

Hey Jaret, there isn't a way to turn this off at the moment but you can bet it's something we'd love to add! It's on our roadmap for future updates.

Nothing to share just yet but we're working on some foundational things in Pixelmator for iOS which, when implemented, should allow for a new painting engine. Once we get to the painting engine, we can then start thinking about potential improvements, including a better Apple Pencil integration. In short, it won't be a very quick change to make.
