Trying to do a simple subtraction of one shape from another. The result is seriously botched (see attached video). 

Anyone know why this might be happening? Ways to avoid it from happening?

I had been using the Corner tool, but had since converted all nodes back to sharp in both shapes prior to performing this boolean operation. 

This is definitely impeding my workflow.

Please take a moment to search the forum before posting. You will find that this Boolean bug has been reported many (many) times over the past 2 weeks since 1.8 was released.

The bug is fixed in the 1.8.2 Betas which are available now (in the Beta forum) or wait for the official release which I think will be very soon.

For a quick fix, try rotating both shapes together by a fixed amount (say 15 degrees). Then do the subtraction, and finally rotate back.

 Thanks, Aammppaa!

I definitely didn't search before posting. Good reminder. 

Glad there's a workaround and fix in the next release.
