[] Expand Stroke with Multiple Strokes

Recommended Posts

Posting this here as the Expand Strokes feature is receiving some attention in the current beta - but this issue also exists in 1.7.x

  1. Create a line, and use the Appearances panel to add a couple of extra strokes.
  2. Now Expand Stroke.


Result: Only the currently selected stroke in the Appearance panel s is expanded, but it retains 3 strokes with zero width and no colour.

Expected: All 3 strokes expanded, each taking the fill colour from the relevant stroke.


PS - Thanks for the dramatic improvement to Expand Stroke accuracy!

I, too, did some testing of the 'new and improved' Expand Stroke feature and this seems to be a very big improvement. Congratulations! I am sure some of the glitches (see above @Aammppaa's post) can be ironed out.

Here are some of my test results (please note: under each of the blue objects there is an original unexpanded object in bright orange colour. Nowhere you see any of it bleed throug).

I note that this behaviour is improved (though not yet fixed) in beta 1.8.532

Expand Stroke will now respect the particular stroke selected in the Appearance panel. :)

But it still only creates one expanded stroke, rather than one per stroke. :(

And still leaves redundant strokes upon expansion. :(

Fingers crossed for the next beta I guess :)
