Pathfinder precision needs to be addressed
Why is the pathfinder tool imprecise in the latest version of illustrator? It leaves trash behind, creates extra nodes, distorts what were precise shapes, and just doesn't work like it once did? What gives Adobe?
Here is one example....of what happened when I used the unite function. Why can it not create a perfect circle? How did you break the tool. Stop adding **** to your programs and fix the problems, PLEASE.
Feel free to contact me directly. Please do. Do something...
The thing is AI is TOO precise, while it gives impression it is NOT.
It's about nature of bezier curves and limited precision.

Still, your request is valid, and I will upvote it, although there's a custom solution, as video shows, exists.
