Curve display accuracy
on Nov 29, 2011 at 5:52:19 pm

I'm probably being an idiot here, but I've drawn some paths with a Wacom tablet and they don't display smoothly. They print out like this too. I can't find anything in Settings to up the interpolation or curve resolution - any ideas? You can see the path on the full-size image and it's smooth like it oughta be....

I suspect that it's that you need more points on your path, to improve the rendering of the brush.

You could double-click on the Paintbrush or Pencil tool in the palette to adjust the tool settings. Or for paths that already exist, Object / Path / Add Anchor Points.

Ah, adding extra curve points works great - thanks. Oddly enough, I also tried changing the brush (using the original path) and it looks fine, so maybe it's the brush I was using that wasn't rendering properly.
