So I have this strange Illustrator issue and I’m not sure if it’s a bug or a “feature”…
I’m using the latest version of Illustrator CC.
I have rather thin grey rectangle:
If a zoom in and want to resize the rectangle (using the Selection tool) and make it taller I just pull the handle down like this:
and it works as it should. But if I zoom out and try to do the same thing this happens:
The upper part of the rectangle no longer stay where it should but moves down as I pull down the handle.
Is there any way to change this?
Oh, a bonus question! Why are the anchor points in my rectangles in Illustrator sometimes filled (left) and sometimes not (right)?
In some zoom levels, especially less than 100%, if the width/height of an object is small then the scale function with its bounding box will be wrong.
To solve it, just zoom in your working view to make the bounding box match the object’s actual path and the scaling will be accurate.
Alternatively, use the
Transform panel to set the anchor point of the object.
