The shape is not following the pen tool I created

I'm creating a rounded shape in illustrator with the pen tool but for some odd reason, the shape will not follow the line I created.  It creates a more angular object.  Has anyone experienced this and knows the answer to correct it?

 

I've attached the screenshot here.

Does it change if you switch to View > Preview on CPU?

Jacob,

 

You already have the answer from Doug.

 

If you wish, you can also try to make the GPU work (better).

 

Graphics cards are included in the system requirements:

Apart from an inadequate card, the issue can be caused by lack of driver updating, lack of proper recognition of the card by the computer, and whatnot (including rifts in the space time, moon, weather, and the fact that Illy sometimes moves in mysterious ways).

 

Here are a few more pages about GPU troubleshooting:

If all magic CPU vs. GPU solutions fail, you may also check if you perhaps inadvertently applied some slight Roughen effect to the objects (see Appearance palette).

 

Probably that is not the case, but it may be.
