Blend Tool Not Distributing Spaces Correctly
When using the blend tool and selecting the "distance between" mode, it is messing up. If I want as many steps as is possible with 3./4" gap between them, I used to be able to select blend and apply distance and the gap would remain constant at 3/4" between pieces that blended. Now, the space is being changed each time which eliminates the utility of distance between. Please fix this, it's ruining the blend mode. If this is the way you are doing it, you need to add a Distance Bertween function that calculates a constant distance between graduating elements. I thought for sure that's how it used to be, I'll double check.
Jason, do you test it on a curves spine like this one?
If yes — then it always behaved like this.
There is a feature request to allow us to control distribution separately form the curvature of a spine — http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/32403880
Do you mind me merging this to it?
Also, there is a workaround I can offer for now — add more points on a path. The more points you add, the more uniform the distribution becomes.
