    I've always been a Paint user... but when XP come out, its Paint is somewhat

    Apart from badly drawing circles (some pixels seem out of place - especially
    in the centre contour corners), when you undo any pixel trace, some bits of
    the pixels are left on the stage...

    Was wondering if anyone noticed this and knows how to solve it?

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks Bob, but I'm looking for a way to solve this or at least get an
    explanation why Paint quality declined... or if it is just me.

    But will keep that in mind! Cheers!

    I am not familiar with Paint (I don't use it).

    I do use a CAD program and Photoshop Elements. I have no problem with
    drawing a circle with either program.

    I do have questions:

    What is your screen resolution?
    Is it a 4:3 resolution or do you have a wide screen monitor and the screen
    resolution is set to 16:9?

    These things would affect how a circle is displayed on the screen.

    Hey CSM1,

    I've gone from 1024x768 in a 17" to 1280x1024 in a 19" and now to a
    1680x1050 in a 22".

    Sometimes it seems to me to be memory shortage of some sort but I just
    bought a new pc and its still the same... I suppose Microsoft just doesn't
    want to fix this little problem in Paint... or I'm the only one who's got it
    even though I switched computers three times in the time I had Paint XP.

    I guess paint is showing its age then.

    Paint has been around since Windows 3.1, I think.
    Depending on what you are using Paint for, there are much newer and better
    programs now.
