Arrow does not resize (or web export) well.

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

(Pixelmator Pro 1.1.2 Monsoon on macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 on MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015))

I just resized an image that contained a smart shape (the Arrow). The control point did not move as expected, distorting the arrow. This also occurs when using Export for Web (may be the same bug).

On resizing:
1. Create a new image.
2. Add the Arrow from the Custom Shapes palette.
3. Resize image to 50%.
Note that the proportions of the arrow have changed.
Workaround. Right click on the arrow and select Make Editable. This creates a shape that will resize correctly.

On Exporting for Web:
1. Create a new image.
2. Add the Arrow from the Custom Shapes palette.
3. Add a PNG export and set the zoom to 0.5.
Note that the proportions of the arrow have changed.
Workaround. Right click on the arrow and select Make Editable. This creates a shape that will export correctly.

Hope you can reproduce and fix. Thanks.

We were indeed able to repro this and the devs are now working on it!
