    for some reason, when i do a contour to a object, is is clipping the corners of all point off, makes some messed up outline effect, i have searched and search to find why it is doing this, and can't figure it out. Is was working fine yesterday...LOL...and nothing has been changed..

    anyone have any ideas?

    Hey Mark,

    Are you using the Interactive Contour or Outline specifically? I've found on some tihngs that the base object has something going on with the nodes at these locations. Try smoothing the subjet nodes instead of them being cusps.

    here is the funny thing, i can outline the object at .001, then outline that at the correct size, and works fine...i think i found a glitch somehow...it is doing it on everything, even a plain square box with four points....

    There might be a setting in the options that has something to do with this, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Can you see the clipping effect in wireframe view (F9)?
    If not, check the miter limit option in the "Outline Pen Tool" pop up box.
    The default for new objects might have been set to the last (clipping) option by mistake.
    I'm thinking this may be it because you say it shows on everything now, that kind of rules out bad nodes.

    This sounds like a hassle I had a while ago and a I fixed it by putting a small fillet on the outline before doing the contour.
    Maybe it's not the same situation, but hey, i learnt something then.
