See image 1 below.
- Orange shape has a width of 38px and a thickness of 1px, with a radius of 12px
- Green has a width of 152px and a thickness of 1px, with a radius of 3px
I created these shapes using the technique in image 4.
There are two rectangles one over the other, and I used the
MINUS FRONT Pathfinder command to create these two shapes of the same height but different widths and radii.
My problem occurs when I try to enlarge these shapes.
Behavior 1 (image 2): I enlarged each of them individually to 200%. The green shape maintained a correct thickness (2px) but radius got distorted, and the shape became a straight line. The orange shape maintained every aspect.
Behavior 2 (image 3): When I enlarge both of the shapes together, both shapes maintained their proportions and nothing got distorted.
Why is that?
I need to maintain the pixel perfect ratio and enlarge without losing/distorting the radius. Is this something to do with the RADIUS / RADIUS-WIDTH RATIO?
Generally, is it even possible to maintain the proportions of such shapes given that align to pixel grid is checked?
