Expanding a Live Paint Object Changes Dimensions
Reporting a very frustrating Illustrator bug that has been there since version CS6 at least.
There is a bug concerning the Live Paint tool. Live Paint objects need to be expanded most of the time to develop them further in Illustrator. However, after expanding, the dimensions of the shapes get distorted and this renders the Live Paint tool completely useless for precise drawings or illustrations.
I hope something can be done to eradicate this bug as it extensively hinders workflow of many projects that need to be developed with Illustrator.
P.S. The same happens not only with imported files, but also with Live Paint objects created by native tools.
I agree. Main reason I almost never use Live Paint except for rather freeform stuff.
