Differences in object sizes in Illustrator 27

Since Illustrator 27.0 I have a problem with the size of objects:

 

E. g. I draw a rectangular with 100 x 100 px. When I click on this rectangular and look in the check box for the size there is shown 101 x 101 px. (The same in mm: I create a rectangular in 10 x 10 mm and the check box says 10,1 x 10,1 mm.)

Big question: Which size is the correct one? The size that I have drawed or the size shown in the check box?

 

In Illustrator 26 the size shown in the check box was the same like I have drawn it.

Is "Use Preview Bounds" (Vorschaubegrenzungen) turned on or off in Preferences > General?

If it's on, it will include the stroke width in the measurement

Hey,

 

You can use the properties window to get accurate sizes.

More or less thar's what I do ...

Creating the object ... and that is the result ... (sorry, I use the programm in German)

But until Illustrator 26 the check box said in this case also a sitz of 100 x 100 px. It cannot be that I have to change each object now ... 😞

Thanks a lot, Monika - that was the solution ... 🙂

 

Either this point is new in Illustrator 27 or the default has been changed.from Illustrator 26 to 27, because I do not remember that I have changed there something before.

I will check it with a colleague who hast not updated to Illustator 27, because he needs a certain plugin that does not run with 27 up to now.
