Basically all done here on master, I think - including the marketing thing. Our options panel now calls the brush setting "Smooth" ☺

Closing this one now.

Well, thank you, 1.0, for at least making the location of that option a lot more obvious.

I think we should have it a bit more accessible, that is, put some "marketing" into it. Like, name it "stabilizer" and make it a global setting that overrides (that is, increases if required) the brush setting.

The "slow position tracking" has problems at the moment too, that prevent me from advertising it too much as a stabilizer. If you wind it up high, the cursor offset is a problem; the filter adds too much delay.

Anything to do here? lirodon: I suspect what you're asking for is indeed our "slow position tracking".

Have you tried the "slow position tracking" brushsetting?

I can really see this being a good open source alternative to something like Paint Tool SAI: but before it can get there, what I think we need to add is a sort of adjustable pen stablizer. It sorta smooths out how you do your strokes to varying degrees.

I think that could be a great addition.
