AD: Expand Stroke not Working as Expected on Imported Objects

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the South African flag from Wikipedia as an SVG. Then I imported it into AD. One of the parts is a triangle with a large stroke of yellow on it and when I expand it, AD resets the stroke to nothing and expands a thin line, as opposed to the actual stroke width of 243.3pt. When I draw a new object it seems to work, but often we use imported artwork, especially since most stock websites produce AI files (no getting around Creative Cloud then).

I've had a look at this and pulled what I think is the same svg form wikipedia. This has something to do with the stroke scaling. If you select the yellow triangle and turn off scale with object in the stroke tab before using the expand stroke command then it appears as you would expect

 

I'll look into this a bit more
