Hello all, I searched and did not find anyone posted this yet (am I the only one?)... it seems after updating to the latest version on mac (25.3.1) I have a new bug. On fonts (only some) if I outline the font, and choose "Round Cap" from the stroke options, it will put some strange dots after the words (looks like a period). Doesn't happen on every font, nor does it happen on every letter, nor does it happen at the end of each word.
If I go to "outline" the font, the dots dissappear. Is this just a screen glitch?
Thanks for any advice.
Update: I just discovered the dot appears at the front of a 'space'.
If I recall correctly, I have seen a few similar threads in the past.
Is this an already existing file?
Try to un-fill the stroke and re-fill again. Or try to copy and paste the text in a new document.
Thanks for the response pix. Yes, it is to both old existing files and also happens if I create a brand new document. I tried the copy/paste and it did not have any effect. Thanks though.
Edit: not sure if this helps to troubleshoot the issue or not... but I just went to change the font to see if maybe it was only happening to perhaps 1-2 fonts, but no, it's the majority of my fonts (but not all). I have a lot of TT fonts and it seems to be mostly those, but yet even some of the OpenType also show the does... it also shows as the preview from just scrolling with my mouse through my font menu. Very strange.
I sent the file to a co-worker and he opened it in an older version (v24) of Illus and did not see the dots.
Perhaps I'll look to see if I can downgrade and re-install v24. (I thought the new rotate canvas was a cool feature though). 😞
Update: confirming that I just installed version 24.3 and the problem went away.
I haven't been able to reproduce this.
Can we see a sample file?
Sure, thanks for taking the time.
interesting sidenote: when I checked my own dropbox link, even the preview window from dropbox website showed the dots.
I see, if you change the stroke to Butt Cap, it will disappear.
Confirmed. I see it now. I was using an OTF font.
It definitely seems to just happen with TrueType fonts.
Definitely a bug
