Sharp Corner Edge Displaying Wrong
I've noticed on this newer version of Illustrator that some corners are showing an odd line overlap. Noticeable when zoomed in. I've attached pictures.
It is also applying this to shapes made in older versions.
I think it's only in GPU mode. If you choose "view using CPU" it disappears. Can this issue be fixed in GPU mode? Kind of annoying and CPU mode is way too slow for me.

Hi guys. I have been having the same issue. I just exported the artboard as a pdf to see what would happen. The PDF appears fine, so seems to be a visual bug. Annoying though, so would be great if it got sorted.

I see this on 2021 version of Ai, but not 2020. The 2021 version in CPU mode is almost unusable even with basic files.

I am having this same issue on my 2020 iMac - I tried the previous of illustrator with the same files and appears fine, the older app just seems to crash my system.

I want to add that I mostly work with pathfinders when I create complex shapes. I already reported another bug with the "merge" pathfinder last summer (when path is too complex and you work with corners, some other unexpected behaviours pop up).

I am seeing the same. Here is a sample file and screenshot. I'm on an intel iMacPro running Big Sur.
Just checked my MacBook Pro, which is about a year old now, the system is up to date, the version is the latest for Illustrator, and the issue is also there.
It seems that on my new iMac (M1 silicon chip) both versions of Ai, latest, and Beta have a similar bug when it comes to some illustration corner, and it clearly shows this is linked to the handles of curves (these shapes were created with shapes and pathfinder), as when you pull these handles around, the bug moves / disappears.
What's expected is that the shape be seamless, perfect on the outside of it.
What happens: the shape has a weird artefact outside in the corner.
This makes illustrations imprecise, with artefacts.
Can you please look into this ? I have tried to work around this unsuccessfully.
