How so? You could just turn off the pixel perfect rendering for screen/ web out put and return to the conventional way of rendering artwork, can you not? This is a user error, not the fault of the program.
I wasn't using pixel preview - just normal preview.
It makes me uncomfortable not trusting illustrator to preserve the integrity of the underlying vector drawing and using the preview to make the pixel perfect corrections. Letting the rendering move the underlying drawing is worrying.
Firing up Illustrator - choosing new web document preset and then having the linework jump around is very disconcerting when the behaviour is hidden in the object rather than in the 'snap to' options in the menu. Wouldn't it have made sense to have a 'snap to pixel grid' in the same menu as the 'snap to grid'?
Is there a way to toggle this behaviour on and off? Or is 'Align to pixel grid' hidden on the object 'Transform' panel the only way?
When you create you new document and choose Web profile, open the advanced arrow at the bottom and you will see that their is an option to turn that option On/Off when you start your document. Turn it off if you don’t want it when you start your project and enable it manually when needed from the Transform Panel.
Thanks for helping to get to the bottom of it.
Oh thank god!
This had been frustrating me all morning!
Wow, really? You actually expect the guys at Adobe to put a setting where it would make sense? I don't think I can stop laughing.
