NSL WEEK 223- Adobe Illustrator “Align To Pixel Grid Stroke”

You ever try to us a half Point Stroke in Adobe Illustrator?

Has it ever rounded up to the nearest point? Check out the video above to find out what’s going on.


Adobe Illustrator Align to Pixel Grid

In the image above, I tried putting in 25.5 for the stroke value but Adobe Illustrator will increase the value to the nearest point. The reason this happens is because we have the “Align to Pixel Grid” option activated.

I can use fractions of a point if I have “Align to Pixel Grid” deactivated.


Creative Cloud Adobe Illustrator New Feature

If you’re using the Creative Cloud, you have access to a new Profile called “Basic RGB”. I’m using this one now because it gives me the RGB color mode but has “Align to Pixel Grid” deactivated. It comes in handy in MY workflow.
