I just stumbled upon this just now and want to know if I'm alone with this or other people also have this issue.
I'm working in Adobe Illustrator CS6 and neither the Distribute Spaces Option nor Distribute Object Option are working.
It doesn't seem to matter if it's a print or web document. Doing the same thing to the same document/graphics in CS5.1 works perfectly.
Here's an Image for you to see what I mean:
Does anybody know what is going on here?
Am I missing something?
Is this a bug? (Align center, right, left, etc works fine!)
Thank you very much in advance! I'm at the end of my knowledge here and really could use some help.
Copypasteing the correctly distributed objects from CS5.1 to CS6 works ok, and if i then repeat the Distribute spaces option nothing changes and it stays correctly distributed. (read: it doesn't badly distribute like before)
To elaborate on what Scott said.
1.411 mm ~ 4pt
1.058 mm ~ 3pt
I believe you have Align to Pixel Grid on for the new CS6 document(s), and not for the one(s) created in CS5.
Maybe it is the default for some (or no) reason.
We thought they overdid it with CS5, and there have been countless threads about that here, but it may be even worse in CS6.
