Both Free Transform tool and bounding box treat narrow objects wrong
I don't use bounding box. It messes with my corner and middle points, it occasionally resizes my art when I just want to drag it by it's side and so on — so I always turn it of.
When I need to scale anything, I pick up Free transform tool.
Alas, both of these marker-ish tools have same problem — they treat narrow objects completely WRONG.
See the file attached.
For example, I have a perfectly aligned and sized magenta strip.
First, I try to use Free Transform tool to make it taller. AI transform my path not from the top edge of the PATH, as intended, but from the top edge of the FRAME, which is taller than my path because of this large markers.
This is ridiculous.
Next, I undo my changes and turn on bounding box.
It does the same thing.
This is very-very-very stupid bug to have :(
