When I'm drawing linework, I want the brush width to reflect the amount of pressure I'm applying, rather than slowly tapering up from 0 pixels at the start. Is there any way to get this? It's really annoying to not be able to start out at my actual full brush width.

Hey there, this looks to be a bug, actually! We'll see if we can fix it in one of our upcoming updates.

Oh, that’s good to hear! This was the main reason I had to go back to Photoshop for my comics.

I noticed while experimenting with it that there seems to be a huge smoothing factor on the tablet pressure, so for example brushes aren’t responsive to rapid intentional pressure changes. I can see why some folks would want this but it would be excellent if this smoothing factor could be configured in some way.

I finally checked out the latest version, and while the taper distance has been decreased substantially, it's still there. This makes it still not very useful for doing comic line work.
