We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Our department has upgraded to the newest version of Illustrator and we've been noticing in some of our existing files that the space is being replaced with a dot/period for stroked text.
Is there a setting or preference to turn this off?
It only seems to affect certain font typefaces, not all.
*the bottom line is the stroked text converted to outlines, which seems to remove the dots but we would like to keep both elements editable.
This has been asked and answered before, search the forum...
Thanks for your reply.
I've been searching the forum for the last hour, with 40,000 conversations, I have not found anything related to this issue. I searched for quite a while before posting.
Could you point me in the right direction as my searches don't seem to be returning the desire results?
There were some mentions of this problem. As a workaround, open the stroke panel and set the
Cap to Butt Cap instead of Round.
Thank you so much! This fixed the issue for now.

This issue is fixed with 25.4.1
Thank you! I had noticed the issue was resolved back in 25.4 as well. The changing of the stroke end to no cap or mitered also helped to tempoarily fix the issue with the dots.
