"Draw Smooth Shapes" option gone missing from Paint

I have lost the "Draw Smooth Shapes" option that appears in Paint in Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

In the Shapes box, if you scroll to the bottom there is usually a tickbox to enable or disabled the drawing of smooth shapes.  This has disappeared for me.

No hardware has changed on my PC since installing Windows, nor has the resolution or colour depth (which is 32-bit: so the alpha channel possibly required to do the smooth drawing exists).

My graphics card is Aero compatible and I run with the full Aero
interface using the latest NVIDIA driver (ForceWare 197.13).

Any thoughts would be appreciated.  As I say this option did exist just after installing 7 but I've only noticed in the last few days it has gone and shapes drawn have jagged outlines.

Hi dftf,
You can use Paint to add different shapes in a picture.
The ready-made shapes range from traditional shapes—rectangles, ellipses, triangles, and arrows—to fun and unusual shapes, such as a heart, lightning bolt, or callouts (to name a few).
If you want to
make your own custom shape, you can use to the Polygon tool to do this.
Refer the Ready-made shapes section from the following article for a list of ready-made shapes available:

You may also try doing a
System Restore to a point when the issue didn’t exist and check if that fixes the issue.

Hope this helps.
