Pixmap alignment in QPushButtons.

It sounds like you have some testing to do if you want to isolate the problem. If it were me, I would not assume it is a PyQt5 problem until you’ve ruled out both the Qt version and the macOS version.
However, a simple Qt bug report with the versions you know that it occurs in would probably be sufficient. You will need a simple working code example to do that and a pyqt example is usually sufficient.
I would not assume that the Qt devs know about this problem purely based on the fact that it’s been there for over two years. Just perform a search on the Qt bug reporting system, and if you don’t find one then report a new one. If they can reproduce it, they’ll assign a level of importance (probably not super high) and that will be all you can do in light of fixing the problem yourself - or more likely - finding a workaround for your particular application.

I also don’t know if this is dependent on the MacOS version. The problems seem to coincide with the release of MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra) in 2017, so it might just be that the Qt developers didn’t keep up with some change in the Mac APIs after v5.10. However, the problems have now persisted for over two years through four PyQt versions, so I hope they are aware that this is still an issue.

There were reports that this had been fixed by 5.12, but that has not been my experience. I haven’t had time to check on 5.14 yet. Everything seems to be fine on Linux, at least with 5.12.
>>> I am writing to ask if anyone has also experienced an issue with the alignment of pixmaps in QPushButtons. I have subclassed QPushButton with the following code:

>>> super(NXColorButton, self).__init__(parent)
>>> self.setFixedSize(20, 20)
>>> self.setIconSize(QtCore.QSize(12, 12))
>>> pixmap = QtGui.QPixmap(QtCore.QSize(12, 12))
>>> In PyQt 5.9, this produced the following button on the right:
>>> <Color Button PyQt 5.9.7.png>
>>> In PyQt 5.14.2, it produces this:
>>> <Color Button PyQt 5.14.2.png>
>>> When I query the sizes, they agree with the values in the code, but although the pixel map is square, the QPushButton below it is clearly not 20x20. It’s rectangular for a start. I can make it nearly square if I increase the size to 30x30. For comparison, the QLineEdit box to the left is 21 pixels high.
