Hey
if I click in the middle with the create points tool (idk how this is called), Ai creates a point not at this spot (at the pink point). What can I do to fix this?
thanks 🙂

chernobyyl,

 

In cases like this, the first guess is Align to Pixel Grid / Pixel perfect art.

 

From CC 2017 on, you can see the options and behaviour here:
https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/pixel-perfect.html


For earlier versions, you may select everything and then untick Align to Pixel Grid in the Transform palette, and also untick Align New Objects to Pixel Grid in the flyout options. It is crucial that the box is completely unticked, not just a - which also counts as ticked.

 

It may be noted that even if Align to Pixel Grid is unticked with all objects selected, as long as Align New Objects to Pixel Grid is ticked the creation of new objects will result in those new objects being aligned, even when they are created from existing objects as may happen with Pathfinder operations.

You may avoid document types with that as default (RGB for web and the like) or change the default for such documents.

This is the Photoshop Forum – there is another one for Illustrator.

Hi

I've moved your post from the Photoshop forum to the Illustrator forum where you are more likely to get help with your issue.
