Whenever I am trying to draw/paint in gimp my cursor seems to be snapping to every other pixel or two?

enter image description here Brush size of 4px, I would like it to be smooth when I draw.

I should note, this only appears to be happening in Windows 7, I do not have this issue on Ubuntu 15.04.

  • Which sections of the GIMP user manual have you read in order to solve this yourself? – Michael Schumacher Mar 30 '16 at 20:49

I'm not sure, but since you mentioned "grid", it looks like literally "snapping" to some grid is activated. Try disabling whatever "snap to" option may be enabled in the "View" menu.
