So ever since updating to Mac M1 I have this issue in illustrator where if I make an object, say a square, I can't then seem to click and drag it around. I end up having to delete the shape (or whatever object) then be able to click and drag
Its a lot more frustrating in regards to previously designed objects that I need to move and constantly getting an audio beep to tell me it cannot be done.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled which doesnt help - along with deleting preferences.
which version are you using ?
We are sorry for the trouble. This is a known issue. The product team is working hard on this, and the fix will be released with the next update.
The + sign icon while dragging the object in Illustrator only happens with the Apple Magic mouse.
I would request you all to upvote this UserVoice if not done already, and please be patient & stay tuned for the updates.
In the meantime, you may downgrade to Illustrator v26.0.3 until the fixed gets released. (This helped some users.)
Cheers for the update Anshul, good to know it is known!
