Very very annoying bug with the size of the classic brush

I've used animate for more than a year now, and suddenly, my brush started to zoom it's size with stage, no matter if the option is on or off. I have it turned off right now and it still changes the size even if it's deactivated, I took a screenshot, all of the lines are drawn size 8 pix and min 6, zoom with stage option deactivated, and the only thing I changed is the % of zoom on the stage, it's very annoying and right now I have to finish a project before a very tight deadline, help please!

Ok, I think I know what the problem is: the minimum size the classic brush can have is 1 pixel, it can't do sub-pixel sizes. This means that if your brush size is 8, which is 8 pixels at 100% zoom, the minimum zoom percentage you can draw with is 12.5% (round it up to 13% since stage zoom does not support decimals). Anything lower than that and the 'zoom size with stage' option won't be able to scale down the brush any further and you'll start seeing size variations.

Hi, note that the option is OFF per your screenshot and the way it works is opposite to what you're describing:

 

Having Zoom size with stage ON, keeps the brush size consistent at different stage zoom levels:

Zoom size with stage OFF, means the brush cursor won't adjust to the stage zoom and so size variations will ocurr:

Would it be possible to take screenshot of the entire screen?

What version do you currently have installed? Please check by going to Help > About Animate...

What is the resolution of your stage?

Do you have an active camera on the timeline?

Are you using Windows Display Scaling with a scale % other than 100?
