Issue with align to key object tool moving objects off the workspace not by the selected distance
When I try to align with a key object, the objects move off of the workspace and not by the distance selected. I have created a video of the issue here: https://www.screencast.com/t/hz5lD32lOW
Will do Egor, thanks for the help!
Strange indeed... Glad it got fixed though!
Next time try to save a copy of the doc as it is. Maybe it's some s rare combination of parameters that cause it. And it’s sad that it’s still there inside, it’s just we can’ catch it.
Hi Egor, I've tried to replicate the issue and I can't now. Typical! Anyhow, I ended up fixing by selecting preview bounds. Not really sure what this did but it stopped it from aligning incorrectly. When the issue occurred no other settings were in place but when I selected preview bounds it stopped. Very strange.
Jordan, thanks for the detailed video. This is... upsetting.
Can you do these things:
1. Try to copy/paste these three objects in a new document with the same artboard size and try to distribute them there (to understand if it is document related or not)
2. Leave objects as they are, delete everything else, save a copy of the document, check if the bug stays after Illustrator is relaunched and then email it to the firstname.lastname@example.org for the investigation
3. You can try to reset preferences for Ai (careful though!), this might help (but it may also not).
