Pathfinder Divide produces imprecise result on curved elements
Mac OS 11.6
I know this is not a new complaint, but it has not been addressed. When I used the Pathfinder Divide tool to divide an element with curves, the resulting shapes are not precise. This renders the tool useless for many operations where users need those lines to sit exactly on top of one another. See image for example.
There are many users, including me, who are begging Adobe to stop adding features we would rarely/never use and please, for the love of all that is holy, concentrate on fixing the basic tools we use every day.
JQ, please provide the file that gives the result you demonstrate. Without a case that is reproducible, little can be done to fix it.
As for the last sentence you made — I am totally agreed with you here.
Can you share some specific examples of others that have had / are still having this issue? I've experimented on my installation and cannot get the pathfinder divide tool to produce inaccurate results *right now* but could swear I've seen it do weird stuff in the past.
Maybe I'm not experimenting with the right kind of vector shapes.
