Simplify path in Illustrator not working on a complex path. The tool shows up for a second and disappears, therefore I have no chance to interact with it or switch to advanced mode. Works fine with a simple path.
Tool in question: Object > Path > Simplify.
Tried to restart, reinstall, upgrade Ai, switching of GPU acceleration, different computer - with no success.
Illustrator 26.0.3 (64-bit) - it wasn’t working for a couple of older versions too, but it’s critical for my workflow now, therefore I'm looking for a solution. Will consider 3rd party plugin.
Win10Pro Build 19044, 64 bit OS
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz 4.20 GHz, 64 GB RAM, GTX1060 6GB
Can you share a sample Illustrator file that contains this complex path?
Thanks but I found a solution.
I found a solution/workaround. All paths were pasted from Photoshop as Compound Shapes and Simplify Tool didn't work with complex paths. It works if I paste the same path as Compound Path and then turn them in Compound Shapes (Object > Compound Shapes > Make).
