When I attempt to move an object or symbol with the arrow keys, it moves diagonally

Just like my title says, when I try to move things with the arrow keys for precise moves, the objects move diagonally. But only in one direction. When I press ANY of the arrow keys, it moves diagonally up to the left. Is there a setting I accidentally turned on? I tried installing different versions of Animate but it does it in every version. It wasn't happening earlier in my project, but recently. Is it possible it's attempting to move it backward in a 3D space? Any help would be appreciated, this problem is making it hard for me to align things...

Hi mate,

 

This is a remarkable video you posted!

 

Would you try to remove the camera layer and see if it still behaves like this?

It would be good if the source of this madness is identified.

 

Do your arrow keys work OK in a new file where you only have one object and no camera?

This issue happens to me aswell but I think the only way is to hide the camera,continue the work and then enable the camera.
