Image Trace has a problem keeping the artwork in the same location from the original.
Illustrator version 22.0.1
Image trace seems to have a problem keeping artwork in the same location from the original. Screen Shot 1 shows some text that I have rasterized to be image traced. I work at a die making facility so rasterized images need to be made into vectors for our CNC machines to "read them."
As it stands, if I image trace this text it is going to be transposed to the right and below the original. The image traced result in Screen Shot 2 is the magenta color. My original rasterized image is in black. When this specific problem comes up we have to manually move the image traced result back over the top of the rasterized art to ensure that it is in the exact position or our CNC machines will be off and ruin dies by milling into image area.
I am glad to update that this issue was fixed in 23.1 release.
Thank you for all the feedback.
Illustrator seems to shift higher-res artwork to the sides. DPI adjustments apparently can be made to the image to remedy this before tracing, but I still consider it a bug alongside not being able to trace high-res images accurately.
