Outline stroke from path in Illustrator
I've made a path in Illustrator which I need to be outlined. Quickest way to do this is with Outline Stroke, but then you'll get this united shape (see object in the middle below).
Is there a way to outline a path in a Devide-like way?
I want the object to be like the first cross, instead of the second cross I'm getting with Outline Stroke.
I want the object to be devided so I can easily remove imperfections.
Object > Flatten Transparency and move the slider all the way to the right. Even though there maybe no transparency, for some reason (which I can't explain) this command expands the stroke in a different manner.
This is somewhat dependent upon the version of Illustrator you maybe using. The commands have a nasty tendency to be slightly different based on the Illustrator version. For example, CS6 won't leave that centerline, when flattening transparency or Expanding, like CC does.
