Measurements of objects
OS X 10.15.6, Illustrator 24.2.3
I guess it is a new feature so that it works like in Indesign. That is at least annoying, at worst horribly dangerous for users who work with exact measurements:
You draw a path and make it 100 mm x 100 mm. By adding an outline of 5 mm the new measurements are 105 mm x 105 mm. I know that is the way to work with in an optical way, but if you want to have the path itself 100 mm x 100 mm, then that really sucks.
Suggestion would be a checkbox (or something similar in the preferences of the programme) for users to decide whether they want the contour to be added to the measurements or leave it the way it was working for the last decades (path is the measure no matter what kind of contur, brush, effect etc. is added to the object).

Thanks. Now everything is working as I am used to.

Yeah, hello again. Same thing — disable 'Use preview bounds' option.
