I think you need the Pixel Tool not the Paint Brush

You cannot have a fraction of a pixel. You can have 1 or 2 pixels not 1 and one half.

I think @MxHeppa is questioning why the three examples are treated so oddly. I would expect all of the values to be rounded up to the nearest whole number (i.e. from 3.5 px to 4 px, from 5.5 px to 6 px and from 8.5 px to 9 px, respectively); there may be an argument for rounding up or down to the nearest even number (e.g. from 8.5 px to 8 px) but the first two examples would still be wrong.

So would I but they ain't. Integers work fine but decimals don't. Bug or what?

I think this is a bug... 

It doesn't like the initial odd number before the decimal. So 4.5 and 6.5 etc. seem ok. If I use 5.5 or 7.5 they are way bigger than expected. I honestly have no idea what it's doing. I'll just log it.
