Why are not all strokes scaled, not all objects scaled ?

I have made a drawing. Then I want to scale it. I select to scale the strokes.

But:

- not all strokes are scaled: some are scaled, some are not scaled

- several objects (that were cloned all from one object) are scaled differently and get different shapes.

 

What's the cause? What am I doing wrong?

 

Here you can see two screenshots: one before scaling, one after scaling to 45% and zooming in a bit.

    Paul,

     

    You may have Align to Pixel Grid ticked; you can untick it in the Transform panel. It is a setting that is default in CS5 for certain kinds of documents.

     

    You may see whether that is it, or part of it, and report what is still wrong after trying.

    You are welcome, Paul.

     

    It's a strange thing that also the stroke-problem is solved: can't realy explain...

     

    At least sometimes Illy moves in mysterious ways.

     

    Align to Pixel Grid is on by default for the web/devices kinds of documents. It is possible to change that, but at least you know the usual suspect in cases like this.
