stroke alignment anomaly
on Oct 28, 2014 at 5:15:21 pm

hello folks who know.

i'm experiencing an odd anomaly when it comes to aligning the stroke along the path of an object which is formed from a compound path. A cut-away section of the object disappears when i align the stroke to Outside.


figure 1 shows the stroke aligned to center.


figure 2 shows the stroke aligned to Outside. for reasons i do not understand, one of the cut-away regions in the letter G has disappeared.

thanks in advance.

steve.
