I'm relatively new to Illustrator, and I noticed something odd with my rectangles. I can't find anything about this (but maybe I don't know the proper search terms to use.) When I draw a new rectangle the bottom displays as slightly wider than the top. If I mouse over or click on it, the red object border appears to be a perfect rectangle, with the distored rectangle below it. (See image - 6400% zoom)
The distortion is very minor (shown rectangle height is 0.04 cm), and only seems to show up at zooms of 3200% or more. I can live with it, but I find it very annoying. Is this a bug, a setting I can fix, or am I doing something wrong? Does it have anything to do with having a document size of 5,000cm x 5,000cm?
FYI - Object > Transform > Reset Bounding Box is greyed out, as I haven't done any transforms - just plain ol' rectangles.
If I rotate the rectangle, it looks like the distortion rotates too.
Any advise appreciated!

It may be caused by graphics card preview, fast but not always accurate. Try if switching between GPU and CPU Preview helps: Cmd or Ctrl E.
That did the trick! Thanks so much.
Good to hear that helped.
