Serious Issues in Illustrator CS6, Expand and Snapping problems

Hi, my friends and fellow vector fanatics, we all love Adobe Illustrator and we like to work with this tool, and being a user since version CS3 I really like the new look and feel of CS6 however I noticed some issues when I am doing the following:


  • when I use pathfinder to expand objects they look weird like in this photo


  you can notice the change in the r and also the a they changed shape

   this is completly un acceptable, since the design has to be very precise



  •   second issue is when I am trying to move an object it snaps to something I don't know if its a grid or not and I have checked off snapping to grid but still all objects snaps.


please I am eager to solve these problems and I am looking forward for your help.


thank you all for you cooperation

    The Align to Pixel Grid ghost seems to haunt the document/object.


    You may untick it at different levels.


    It is the default for certain kinds of documents, and it may be applied at object level.


    I believe you can get to untick it through the Transform panel.

    Hi All,


    Just thought id add this also to the forum just incase you dont want to keep going back and unticking the Align to Pixel Grid option box. If you want it off completely, then go to the small arrow (far right of the transform palette) and turn off Align New Objects To Pixel Grid. Then things wont snap everytime you create a new shape or add guides etc..hope that helps vector buddies
