Path points shift upon changing stroke weight
on Jul 15, 2011 at 9:05:08 pm

Hello there!

So in Illustrator CS5, whenever I have an object highlighted and adjust the stroke's weight using my arrow keys, the whole object's position shifts by small fractions. If I have an object stroked at 1, press UP until it's 5, then press DOWN to 1 again, the object does not shift back to its original position, but remains offset.

The project I'm working on involves differing strokes throughout, and it's quite frustrating to have to realign objects whenever I change their weight. Anyone know what's up?

Thanks in advance, first time posting but this forum has solved many of my past problems!

**Note: The path points don't shift if I manually enter a new stroke weight, only when I use the keys...

I'd do a couple things -

1) see if there's an update to your software

2) try posting this in the Adobe.com forum http://forums.adobe.com/community/illustrator/illustrator_general
