Three problems with strokes.

Here is a sample file.

Stroke to a curve with pressure.

1. Stroke is rendered with some kind of jitter. This happens very often to strokes with pressure.

2. If you apply Layer > Expand Stroke, round edges get sharp points. This happens even without pressure.

3. Again, Layer > Expand Stroke is very inaccurate.

Blue: Original

Red: Expanded stroke

While an offset of a bezier curve cannot always be exactly converted to another bezier curve, Affinity Designer's accuracy is very poor compared to Adobe Illustrator's.
