Hello! First time posting, though I’ve used the community boards to troubleshoot, and am grateful for the folks on here.
I’m having a recurring issue: I will use the shape tool in Illustrator to make a circle, or rectangle, and when I go to cut it it cuts twice, though there seems to be only one line in the file (I only make the shape once, no copy/pasting), and the cut settings are set to a single pass (# of passes: 1).
Here’s the file:
Any ideas why this keeps happening when I use a standard shape?
I’m trying to find where a second path is - in layers there’s only one, and no matter how tight I zoom in I don’t see more than one. Is there a way to find and delete the second path? Here’s a screenshot:
That was it! I tried all the other stuff with no luck, but centering the stroke revealed a second path that I couldn’t erase. Tried making a new ellipse with the stroke centered and it worked fine. Thanks so very, very, very much!
