Unwanted characters appearing when outlining text.
When using Type > Create Outlines, there is a chance of unwanted characters appearing.
Attached is a file where the error is reproducible. Notice how an additional "d" and "g" appear with you outline the text.
This file was created using Ai CC v22.0.1 and according to forum posts ive found, this issue has existed since CS4 or possibly earlier.
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 23.0.6 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!
Apologies for the inconvenience caused to you by this Issue.
We are unable to reproduce this issue from Scratch , while investigating the file provided on the UV we found when we copy paste the text inside the text object to Text Editor(like Notepad, Sublime) we are able to see the extra Characters which appears on Outline in Illustrator.
Can you help the Illustrator team to isolate this issue further so that we can nail this down?
If yes, then please let me know the following:
1)Are you able to recreate this issue in a fresh document or How such file can be actually created .
2)Kindly provide the steps/Video to recreate the file from scratch in which issue is reproducible.
Kindly share the requested information at ShareWithAI@adobe.com in a Zip file.
Please mention the title of this issue as the subject of the mail.
Thanks & Regards
Illustrator CC 2018 is doing this for one of my files as well. I replaced the text field completely and it solved the issue, but now I'm super paranoid that it's happening in other files without my realizing it as well.
