Yes. The new Simplify Path tool in Illustrator (recent fall 2019 update) does not do nearly as accurate a job of simplifying a path while preserving curves and overall shape integrity as previous versions. I'm having to do a tremendous amount more manual editing to remove excess points and it's really disappointing. I was hoping the tool would improve with future updates but so far it has not. I export a lot of drawings from Adobe Draw on my iPad and then simplify my paths on my desktop in Adobe Illustrator. The reduction in this tool's accuracy has added hours to every single project I import. I really hope they revise the tool again at some point and improve its performance.
"...does not do nearly as accurate a job of simplifying a path while preserving curves and overall shape integrity as previous versions." Catfish describes it well. I used to be able to simplify contour cut outlines for stickers I print and cut, and the new simplify tool after ver 23(?) does a horrible job compared to the previous option.
it doesn't work good at all. i was hoping resutls closer to vectorscribe but it's not even better than the old reduce paths tool.
