BUG - Offset path preview remains in artwork even after cancel or tick off preview
Hi. Since Illustrator 23 I have a very strange bug in the preview of offset path. When I select a shape and select offset path I get the dialog. In the dialog I can set the variables. if I then click ok all is well. But if I check preview I can see what the values I entered will do. So far so good. But then something strange happens. If I change a value I see the result in a preview, but I also see the first preview. The result is even added to the last preview path. And i can keep on doing this and the offset path keeps on growing...
But it gets even stranger when I click cancel. it does not cancel, it keeps all the previews in the artwork... I need to undo it for every 'preview' I got.
This makes working with this tool nearly unworkable.
I included a picture where I only checked and unchecked the preview checkmark a few times...
Please let me know how to fix this.
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.2.0 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!
I'm still having this preview issue in 23.1.1 using rotate (working around the issue in rotate is a BEAST btw) , scale, and offset path. Haven't noticed it anywhere else. So glad I found this so at least I know that if I just have one document open the bug is negated.
I get this issue with everything that uses preview. ie scale, rotate, offset path, simplify path.
Makes precision work nearly impossible.
Hans, can you check if you also have this going on: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/38034430-bug-multi-page-pdf-opening?
Also very weird behaviour...
Hans, you are right. I did not even notice this before. Same for the scaling preview bug.
I want to point out that this only happens when you have more than one document open at the same time. Weird!
This is the worst bug I've ever come across in Illustrator. Just WOW. This needs a fix asap.
I forgot to mention that scaling shows a similar bug. When I tick preview it shows the scaled preview. When I then untick it, it does not change back to the initial size. When I press cancel it also does not revert back to the initial size.
