Applying Inflate Clips the Ends of a Line
I made a line with the line tool, made the stroke 3 points wide, and chose a color for the stroke. I also went into the stroke options and chose the rounded cap. Then I used the width tool to tweak the shape of the line to resemble the object I was drawing.
When I go to Effect-->3D and Materials-->Inflate, it crops off both the top and bottom end of the line.
I'm using Windows 11 and Adobe Illustrator 2022 v. 26.5.
Can you please share this 'needle' for the team to look at? Only it, nothing else.
