Expand stroke still sucks

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to pile on here, but wow, yes expand stroke does suck:

I've only used it twice so far (and this is the second time), but both time I've had to go in and manually tweak the result.

Hi eobet,
We hope to have this fixed for v1.8. This is particularly problematic with objects with thin/small strokes (<2pt). To work around this you can scale up the object  a x factor (say x100), expand the stroke, then scale it down again the same factor. You should get a more accurate rendition without having to tweak manually. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this is causing you.

Why not simply using a much higher resolution?

The answer is right here in the thread, just read above. ”We hope to have this fixed for v1.8.”

And the beta of 1.8 will be out ”soon”.

1.8.0 is many weeks (perhaps even some months) away from launch.
