Is anyone experiencing Expand or Expand Appearance not working in both 2021 and 2022 version of Illustrator? Mine just stoped working out of the blue for no apparent reason. Can no longer change strokes to shapes, etc. Not a layer locked issue. Have tried multiple different files. Tested simple shapes and strokes. The dialog box will come up, but when you hit OK, it simply does nothing. Installed older version as well to see if it would work and doesn't work in it either. Have not yet trashed preferences but will try that next and a reinstall of 2022.

Trying to get my white fille shape with white stroke to turn into a shape. Normally use Expand function but no luck. Reinstall and trashed Illustrator prefs as well. As well have installed couple older versions of Illustartor, and none of them the Expand function will work on this art. No masks in art.

 did a test of two seperate shapes. The top pink one Expand function worked. The bottom green one it does not. There must be something going on with the shape I'm missing.

I found out what it was. My art had to have Compound Path released. FACEPALM.
