I've been creating a library of frequently used assets within adobe illustrator by drawing out graphics (comprised of multiple elements, fills, strokes, and colors) and adding them to a library via "Add Elements > Graphic" button within the "Libraries" panel.
I have one library I've created in 2016, and have been adding to it ever since. I have since moved to a new computer, updated operating systems, updated Adobe CC versions, and changed the name of the library a few times. I've recently noticed that the sizing of some graphics in my library have changed.
For example I have a set of five graphics are all supposed to be identical except for color. When I created this graphic I made it once, copied it a few times, altered the colors and save each one as a graphic within the "Libraries" panel. Now when I drop each graphic from this set side by side in illustrator, two of the five objects are smaller than the rest.
This has happened a few times within the last year and I need to figure out why this is happening. I will have to go through the several hundred graphics and do a quality control screening of all of them to make sure everything is correct, and then I need to make sure they remain unchanged.
Has anyone else noticed their library assets not appearing as they were originally created?
Obviously proving this is next to impossible because the library asset is a live linked element, meaning all instances of it will render as it currently appears. Sadly I do not have any rasterized or flattened files from when the assets were first created to compare side by side with the current iteration of the asset.
The fact that what was previously a set, are now no longer matching is all the proof I need that something is amiss.
