So i used to use Corel Painter on Mac. Now i switched to PC. Now im having a super annoying issue and i dont know how to fix it.
Every line i draw has weird breaks in it and does not come out smooth. A line that is drawn super fast and smooth somehow comes out with a wiggly look. This does not happen in photoshop, and does not happen on Corel on my Mac. Here is 2 pictures. One where i draw smooth lines the way they are supposed to look, and the weird slightly wiggly lines that Corel is giving me currently.
Smooth Normal Lines
Weird Wiggly Lines
Any help or ideas would be appreciated. (I tried re-installing the program a couple times, downloading different wacom drivers, different brushes, plugging tablet into different usb, turning on and off windows ink, etc)
I went to windows>settings>system >Display and changed "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" from 150% to 100%. And magically i have the smoothest lines ever like i used to, And i can switch it back and forth between 150% scaling and 100% and get the problem to come and go.
Also review this thread- been a problem in Painter for a long time.
So actually i solved my problem. It turns out i was getting wiggly lines even in photoshop, not just Corel. And the fix was something i never seen anyone suggest, but i just did it randomly and it worked.

Someone was talking about multiple monitors maybe being a problem, so i was messing around in display settings and randomly chose to change that.
It kind of sucks of course because i have a 4k monitor, and not having 150% text scaling makes things very hard to read, because everything is so small. But god damn im happy i fixed it.
Thanks for the replies though and help!
If that's the solution, then major kudos to you, as this has been a longstanding complaint by people for a long time with Painter, and nothing seemed to fix it for some.
It's still fixed, and the problem still comes back when i set the display to scale text to 150%. So yea, its the fix for me. I was getting wiggly lines in photoshop to, but they were only 1/10 as bad, so it was actually hard to tell. So i dont think its a Corel program issue, more like a driver / windows thing. But if someone comes by this post hopefully it helps them to. because not a single post across the internet suggest that as a fix that i saw, and i was losing my mind.
There is another win10 setting for display; independent from the 150% setting you use. Hit win key + u to get to Text Size. I use 4K screens and set this to 130% (along with scale @ 150%). Only issue I have found is in newest Ps, some plugins panels are wrong sized....but you can change the 130% to 0 anytime (and go back) no restart needed.
I have no idea if this affects P22 brush wiggles.
