I'm quite new with Illustrator and I have an issue that I'm trying to find a soluting for a few hours now!

So when I use dark colors on any shape a white thin line appears around it. I tried adding a stroke but the white line moves around the stroke. This is only happening when I'm using dark colors, the lighter colors look as they should! I tried to export as a .png & .pdf and the lines are still visible.

Without a stroke:

Random light colors:

(Edit) I didn't convert any image to make my design.I drew it right from the start. I tried it again without using divide on my shapes, it still looks the same. I tried to add Offset paths,nothing changed.Even if I add a background the lines are still showing!

English is not my first language, I hope I was understood!

  • @WELZ I tried everything that was suggested in those two posts you linked but unfortunately nothing worked. The issue for me is only when I'm coloring with dark colors. – Vagia Aug 7 '18 at 23:18
  • Have you tried exporting your artwork? It is usually only visible while it's still vector. – WELZ Aug 7 '18 at 23:19
  • I tried exporting as .pdf, .png, .jpg, .svg and it looks even worse – Vagia Aug 7 '18 at 23:22
  • The lines still look like conflation artifacts to me. The lighter color however I cannot explain. Looks like an issue with your GPU. Try disabling GPU accelleration and see if that fixes it, else try updating your drivers (there was a known issue with NVIDIA cards not too long ago) – PieBie Aug 9 '18 at 7:14

Check under the View menu to see if you have Pixel Preview turned on, it could cause issues like you are describing.
