Stroke smaller than 1pt creating spikes/anomalies on the curve
Illustrator 2020 24.0.3
macOS Catalina 10.15.2
Need hairline stroke (.003pt) for one of my machines. When I outline Helvetica (Type>Create Outlines), and change the stroke to anything smaller than 1pt, the curves of the font blow out and create spikes. I've been using the same method for several years and this had only just now become an issue.
Tried other fonts and only seems to happen on curves. If I try to use the file anyway and my machine does not recognize the file as having any data in it.
Try this - go to stroke, change CAPS and CORNERS to round (middle buttons).
