I don't know what happened, but when I hold shift and drag and object it only maintains the horizontal drag or the vertical drag... but not at the 45 degree angle... I just upgraded to 18.1.0... and its driving me absolutely batty. What gives?

If you are talking about the selection tool, as far as I know, there has never been a shift plus drag at a 45º angle. Shift locks horizontal or vertical movement.

Thanks Rick... must be totally a Mandela Effect for me... I could have sworn it did, I must be confusing with all the other programs... which begs the question, why the heck isn't there a 45 degree drag?!

 

I did find a work around [if anyone happens to stumble on this thread]

 

Apply two "Slider Controls" to the object, one for "X Axis" and one "Angle" then throw this expression into the Position of the object.

x = effect("X Axis")("Slider")
a = effect("Angle")("Slider")
y = -x*Math.tan(degreesToRadians(a));
value + [x,y]

 

Sort of the long way around but its totally working for me. But seriously, why is this not a thing?
