Expand Stroke on Text Missing Sections

Recommended Posts

After multiple attempts and different fonts, I am observing that after expanding a stroke it is removing the inner section of the text (varies from words and font types).  I am having to use the previous version to add strokes to fonts for my drop shadows.

Hi @2amrose

Please set in the stroke settings align to outside before use Expand stroke.

Hi @2amrose,

Thanks for your report and our sincerest apologies for the delayed response here. We are exceptionally busy following the release of V2 and we thank you for your continued patience and understanding here.

Can you please confirm for me, which fonts are you finding are affected by this issue?

The font used to create the curves in my screenshot is Adobe Caslon Pro 180pt with a 2pt stroke aligned to the outside.

Thanks for verifying that for me! I've been able to replicate this issue with the stroke set to either Inside or Outside (though centre worked correctly) so I'll be getting this logged with our developers now :)
