    Mystery Flash fail: inaccurate size control with stroke shapes

    JonathanSWFt

      So, I've been working with Flash for many years, and I've never been able to figure out why this happens:

      Amazingly, I have never been able to find much discussion of this phenomenon on the web, and I've been working around it literally for years.  I've got a formula that fixes it (add a fudge factor of strokeThickness * desiredHeight/100 to the clip's height), but I can't believe that this behavior persists and there hasn't been a bigger uproar over it.

       

      Am I missing something here?  Can anyone enlighten me?
