Hi,

Since version 7.3.1 (7.3 ?) the level line used by the straighten tool is significantly jagged. This is very distracting and makes using the tool more difficult.

It has always been that way. The line appears jagged to show you that the area you drag it on top of is not level. If the line is smooth then it is level.

OK. Let's say it's significantly more jagged than with previous versions.

I don't think it's changed. You can find a gazillion YouTube videos of old versions that show the same thing. Here's one from 2011:

However, I just tried it in Lr 2015.13 and it was a bit finer. Either way it's as intended.
