Why is brush size changed from mm to pixel?

Hi, my daughter's iOS Flipaclip drawing setting (pencil, brushes) went from MM to pixel and she says it's not the same. We have searched every way possible to revert back to MM and for the life of us, we can't find a way.

Please help!

Hello,

So the size of the brushes is very accurate now since they are in pixels. We had to change to px because before a size of 2,4mm, for example, represented a size of about 15px. Millimeters always got converted in the end to whole pixel number. The pixel size is as accurate as it gets since it's not possible to draw between pixels. Also, the problem with using mm was that the size, say 2,4mm would be different across devices. This was due to screen information not being super accurate for most devices.

Best,

have you tried starting the app sideways? It usually decreases pen size.

Oh, right, I made a mistake. Yeah, I mean that the smallest size is 0.10 mm... Add a small point like 0.01 mm could be usefull
