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.
i suspect what has happened is that, somehow, the path that describes that wayward part of the G has been "inverted" so that illustrator is seeing it as an external part of the object and directing the stroke accordingly. i don't know how to fix this, or even how it has happened since all the other cut-away sections seemed to behave as they ought to ...
