Hi, i have  a problem to make my object shorter, my object is a simple rounded rectangle. 

 

I want to make it shorter ( shrink it while keeping the same width ) but i can't.

Its like he is " blocked " to became shorter. 

I can make him longer but if i do that, again i can't make it shorter. 

 

So i can only make it longer than the previous size. 

He get longer and longer but impossible to make him shorter. 

 

Im pretty sure that before, i could do that. 

 

If you have the solutions that would help me a lot !

Thank you that is helpful and I can exactly repdroduce the problem you describe. It seems to be a bug in Illustrator.

 

To work around it, try rotating by 0.001°. That fixed it for me.

Hi @gui09911

I made a rectangle, then gave it rounded corners, then rotated it, similar to yours and I can drag the length up and down no problem. Something must be different about yours and lots of things can cause it. Can you please post a pdf of your example document? Make sure you include Illustrator compatibility.

Yeah, there is definitely something buggy going on. You can report it here. Provide a link to this thread, too, so they can use your demo file. Also, if you post a bug, please post the link to the bug report here so people can vote on it.

I also tried it for myself. I didn't have this problem. Try restarting Illustrator and see if the problem persists.

I just tried to restart Illustrator, start a new file and try another rectangle on 315° and it's the same bug. 

 

Try to make a rectangle, then make the corner fully round and put the object in 315°.

 

Tell me if you got the problem or if it's okay for you

Dragging it to make it shorter does not work (unless I make the corner radius smaller), but changing the height of the shape in the Transform panel works.
