is the version before 5.0 still available and where can I get it? I don't want to be a dick or something but I'm in the middle of a project and wasn't aware, that the update changed the brush. Size 2 is now smaller thant in the previouse version an 3 ist too thick. Can't get it to draw the way it was before. Here is a example. I drew the clound on the right again with version 5.0 and the lines are thinner. The one on the left is from the previuse version with a line from version 5.0 drawn in the middle.

Yes, there seems to be a difference.

Both of these are Brush Size 2; Hardness 75%





You can use a decimal value for brush size, such as 2.3. Does that help?


Revert to an old version should be a last resort, and even then, a temporary solution.

You can type in a size between 2 and 3, e.g. 2.5. Older versions would round to an integer, but PDN5 does not.


The difference is because PDN4 would effectively use a more square-ish brush at very small sizes, whereas PDN5 does an accurate circle-shaped brush. In a future update I'll be adding more brush shape options.

The Text Tool has had this for quite a while. See https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/TextTool.html#4


I'll file a note to update the docs.
