Is this buggy or is my method flawed?
I create some text (a box object, not path text) then I make some tweaks (kerning, leading, etc) then I add a stroke to the text using the appearance panel and the stroke is not aligned with the text!
Anyone know of this issue?
Please tell us which system and version this is.
Also: please check the layers panel if there are copies of the text object lying around.
Thanks Monika, it looks like a bug as it goes away if you change the text (comes back occasionally if you don't leave the object alone afterwards.
Here's the intel:
When I removed the fill and added a new fill and stroke, it works as expected.

Sadly this bug remains unfixed in the latest version of CC 2019:
I'll report it later if it's not been done already by any Adobe staff on these forums.
