Unwanted automatic grouping of compound paths with blob brush tool
When I draw too close to an existing path/compound path with the blob brush, it automatically groups the two (SEPERATE!) path together.
It is "solved" if I check "merge only with selection" but that is not a real fix.

Agreed, this is madening. Causes bugs I've never seen before too. Nest errors or some such, followed by errors grouping objects due to be more than 29 sub-levels deep (which I didn't want or make), and then a can't ungorup the objects error

More detail in this topic:
This appears to occur when the bounding box of the blob brush shape overlaps the previously-selected (filled) object of the same fill colour.

After lastest update of illustrator when I draw lines with blob brush they group together even when they aren' t touching. WTH?
I do one line, another line next to the first one and when i choose select tool and click either first or second both are selected. When I do ungroup via shortcuts it is not working, I must click ungroup from menu.
Can someone fix it or tell me how to fix it? It is really annoying especially when I am using blob brush for lines art in my graphic.
I CAN'T WORK PROPERLY!
