    I am not sure whether this is the right forum to ask, but whatever...

    When I draw a straight line with pen and then stroke it with brush (1px, white, solid) it seems wider than 1px (that wouldn't be such a problem), but also looks transparent and not fully white.

    Here is a picture:

    The upper strokes are just plain drawing with the same pen settings, whereas the bottom line is a 1px stroke of pen line.

    It seems that when I draw a really quick line by hand it looks like the pen stroke one. I don't remember having this problem before...

    I checked the brush presets, everything seems to be fine without any settings...

    (The hardness is set to 100%)

    That is kind of strange. Not sure why it would do that, but I am seeing the same thing.

    Try using the pencil tool instead.

    So it does the same when you try it?

    Yeah, the pencil works fine for straight lines, however it's not anti-aliased in curves.

    Sorry, I think I misread your post at first.

    I did try it and it does the same thing for me. But when you stroke the path, can't you just choose the pencil tool? It comes out fine for me then.

    I think you read it right, but all I am saying is that when you stroke it with pencil, it comes out non-anti-aliased, whereas the pen stroke is smooth.
