    You're welcome :)

    Based only on your example images, it appears your un-closed path has been given a gradient fill (second image) whereas it had a white fill in the first image. You can see that it's set that way by looking at the fill and stroke preview icons. In image1, the fill color square is set to white and the stroke color is set to a gradient.

    You can test this by holding shift and pressing the X key, that will swap the fill and stroke color settings of the selected object.

    Pressing the "/" key will remove either the stroke or fill color of the selected object (setting the color to "none"), depending on whether you have the fill or stroke selected in the preview. Swap them by pressing the X key or clicking on the opposite one to the current one on the preview. (the "current" one is the one displayed "in front of" the other on the preview)

    If you remove the fill the extra gradient will disappear.

    @Egor: I'll look it up, thanks for the suggestion. I'd heard of it before but somehow never got around to looking into it.

    I thought I had a suggestion for you using the actions panel:

    select > all in artboard
    select > inverse
    delete

    but as it turns out, it won't work with more than one artboard - the command in the select menu is "all on active artboard" but in my action is recorded as "select all in artboard". So, art on the currently active artboard is selected, not "any art on any artboard".

    voting for this as it seems like it would be very useful.

    @kp: since the current user interface is lacking this function on the swatches panel, you can always use the keyboard shortcut. Pressing the X key on your keyboard will swap the stroke and fill color.

    I find this saves me from mousing over to the tool bar to do it, but I also don't have my cursor in/around the swatches panel very often either (my work is less art-creation and more pre-press/production).

    I like this idea, it'd be a handy addition for newer users unfamiliar with the keyboard shortcut (x key)

    In addition to this, 'swap fill for stroke' toggle, how about a 'use current fill color as stroke color' and 'use current stroke color as fill color' toggles along with associated keyboard shortcuts?

    I have definitely seen this before. I'm not sure it's an illustrator bug though, on my system it usually occurs with older fonts or badly made/free fonts.

    Voted though, since it seems like it should be easy to include some sort of 'when creating outlines, make this text a compound shape' function

    If that particular font within the family is supposed to be slightly smaller and inset or nest within the larger when set to the same font size (as you demonstrated at left with EM size) I would say the cap height for that font isn't defined correctly within the font itself, or that the font's intended insetting/nesting doesn't function with cap height sizing.

    @Rob: I agree entirely with your comment and the original post's request. It'd sure be nice if Illustrator could see the OCG's and re-interpret them as its own layers somehow. I'm not sure how they'd handle objects that are assigned to more than one OCG though. How does Affinity Designer handle that? I don't have it here at my workplace to test on, unfortunately.

    For those of you commenting below:

    Z-order / stacking order layers CANNOT be saved from authoring software into a PDF. All you can do is save PDF "layers", which are not z-order/stacking order layers but are instead known as "optional content groups", OCG's.

    A single path object can be in multiple OCG's, while another may only be in one (and that one may be one that the first object was also located in as well) The OCG's visibility can be switched on and off with software capable of seeing them, such as the paid version of Acrobat, and various professional preflighting programs.

    Illustrator does not see OCG's. In reality, illustrator should never be used to open and edit a PDF, though I do understand sometimes there is no other choice.
