    Scale Distortion

    Inkbrush76 Community Member

      I'm trying to scale an object in Illustrator CS5, but I keep getting some weird distortion in the shape.Scalingissue.jpg

      If you look closely, the bottom of the lightbulb is distorting when I scale the art up. The same thing happens in reverse. I am constraining with the shift key when I scale. This happens with both the selection tool and the scale tool. I like a lot of the features in Illustrator CS5, but if this happens often, I can't use it.

       

      This artwork has a 2 pt stroke. The effect is even more pronounced if the artwork is converted to outlines/fill.

       

      Anyone got any suggestions?
