Draw a circle with border, expand stroke and you get an oval!

Expand stroke is a very useful tool, but is not accurate, at least with circles as you can see in the screen shot.

Please fix this bug.

Hi jarcon,
Thanks for your feedback. We are already aware of this issue. It's particularly bad with strokes below 2pt. If you upscale the objects, perform the expand stroke and downscale them the same factor you should get a better result. I'm bumping out report and adding a link to this thread for reference.

Is it safe to assume it will be prior to v2 at least?

I don’t think so, but what do I know? :/

haven't found a way

You can get great results by using another problem as a “solution”: Increase “DPI” in “Document Setup…” (best before you start your work). For example use 21893 dpi.
