Fill colour doesn't line up with the path on curves in an object.

enter image description here


  1. draw line with pen tool
  2. apply stroke
  3. outline stroke
  4. fill and path don't line up

Same thing happens if I create the whole shape (i.e. without first having it as a stroke and outlining it).

Stumped by this one. Any help is much appreciated!

  • Does this happen if you make a new object on a new document? Have you checked to see if there are more paths in the same spot? You might be selecting a path that has no fill and stroke. – AndrewH Aug 16 '17 at 14:53
  • Hey @AndrewH, yup it happens with any custom shape. I've recreated it multiple times on different artboards, new docs, etc. I'm definitely selecting the correct one as I can turn on and off the fill and convert to outlines and see it's the one selected. – Maeve G Aug 16 '17 at 14:57
  • Were you able to find a solution to this? I'm struggling with the same issue. – Felix Josch Sep 5 '18 at 12:57
