This is apparently a 15x15 circle.

 

This never happened before, the circles were perfectly symmetrical before. I tried installing an older version of paint.net but it doesn't help.

Trying to get a small symmetrical circle using entire pixels (antialiasing Disabled) is rather more difficult than it seems. This post by PDN Rick Brewster explains https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/111309-1-pixel-width-circle-drawing-enhancement-needed/?do=findComment&comment=530603

 

If you toggle the antialiasing ON (from :AntiAliasingDisabled:  to :AntiAliasingEnabled: in the toolbar) you'll get a much nicer circle BUT the width won't strictly be one pixel.

As I already said, the circles were PERFECTLY FINE before, without anti-aliasing. This started happening a few days ago. I really need 1-pixel wide circles, not anti-aliased ones.

What version of PDN are you using?

The newest one. Installing an older version doesn't fix the problem.

I was getting the same.  As a work around for now you can draw small circles on a larger canvas and then copying and pasting onto a smaller canvas eg. 20 x 20 15 x 15 and they're fine.  Alternatively draw on a larger canvas and then crop to size ... admittedly a bit more work (seconds) but it does the job either way

I just don't understand why it happens on all versions now. I thought it's a bug in the newest version.

 

This issue has been around forever.

 

Here is a thread from 2016 (mentioning a thread from 2010) about the issue: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/109003-can-the-circle-tool-be-improved/

 

 

Anyway...

 

Here is one solution: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/113602-single-pixel-width-circle-solution/?tab=comments#comment-552407

 

 

Or, you could draw a circle and select the left half of the circle, copy it, paste it and use my plugin Effects > Flip Horizontal to mirror image the half, and position it for use.

Thanks for all the answers guys.

 

I hope the devs fix this issue. It's weird that it started happening to me only a few days ago, but to some people it started happening years ago.

Looks like all tools are messed up, the curves aren't symmetrical at all. It's happening in MS Paint too. I'm starting to believe this is caused by a Windows update.
