Photoshop 20.0.4: Jagged lines

I updated to version 20.0.4 and started noticing that my sketching lines are slightly jagged or no fully smoothed (smoothing is on at the default 10%). Even when using the plugin Lazy mouse nezumi, it still remained slightly jagged. For Example: If you try to draw an ellipse (at a fast speed) you will see some jagged edges in the most pronounced curve part of the ellipse.

Rolling back to 20.0.1 solved the problem. Not sure if 20.0.2 and 20.0.3 are also having this issue, all I knew is that 20.0.1 was working for me and decided to roll back to that version.

I'm using a wacom tablet, as a third monitor. I'm on windows 10.

Hi Juan,

Can you go to Preferences > Performance... and check "Legacy Compositing" and restart Photoshop. Does the problem go away?

I'm using the current version of PS (Sept 2019) and every drawing or selection tool started doing the jagged edges, especially with deep curves. I found your answer and followed it - it worked! Thanks!
