Hello. Im having some troubles with resolution. When I start a page with lets say 1920x1080 px I can work nicely and round corners and can equal things to be the same size. But when Im done and I resize it to 600x400 px it's getting some pieces wrong sized even tho I equalized them to the maximum in a bigger size. What am I missing? Thanks in advance.

Hi @cris,
i am not sure i get your problem but do you expand the artwork before you resize it?

Yes I did that but didnt help. Let me show you what Im talking about. I used the full area, expanded all the artboard and my logo looked clean and nicely as in this picture:

Then I made the artboard 600x400, downscaled it by holding shift+alt and this happend:

CrisDesignArt,

This has nothing to do with the resolution or the dimension of your artboard.

Adobe Illustrator is extremely precise (sub-pixel placement of anchor points). The behavior you are describing most probably has to do with an option which, depending on your version of Adobe Illustrator, is called "snap to pixel" or "align to pixel grid". Basically, if that option is enabled, you are asking Adobe Illustrator to align anchor points to the pixel grid instead the appropriate sub-pixel position when resizing.

See the two answers by Scott and Keavon on this (similar) StackExchange question:
https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/6005/

Hope this helps,

Ortega Graphics

Hi cris, when you work with AI, it's imposible to have issue like this cus it's vector tool. When you down scale or up scale at any size, it must be exact where the point should be belongs.
To make sure you din't make any wrong step. You can start with 2 simple retangle shapes (no stroke, put each of them vertically and obliquely. Make underside of vertical one tilted excatly like skewed shape one). Stick each other and you go down scale just like you did above. If you find the previous problem, you should follow OG advise or you can explore in youtube or internet.
PS: beside expand command, you can try object - path - outline stroke.

Hope thats help

Thank you both @OrtegaGraphics and @ava19nauval for your answers. I read them both but Ortega clarified the problem and now it works like a charm. Many thanks, guys!
