    Mark made by paint brush doesn't fill the tool's outline.

      Mac OS X 10.8.5

      Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6

      Using a mouse, not a tablet.


      I don't know when this started, but it occurs in both PS CC and CS 6.


      My paint brush tool is set to a standard, hard (100%) round tip, 100% opacity and flow. My paint cursor preference is set to normal brush tip which means that I see a circular outline representing the tip.


      When I click the paint brush tool, I expect that the paint mark will completely fill the circular outline that I see. Instead, it fills some percentage less (perhaps 10-15%) than the circular outline. This occurs all the time and regardless of the size of the brush. As you can probably imagine, it makes precise painting impossible.


      I assume that sometime, somehow, I changed a setting by mistake but for the life of me, I don't know what it could be. The only thing I've tried (because I can't think of anything else) is trashing my settings and that made no difference.


      Can anyone help with this?
