Cursor jiggle

I just started using Adobe Illustrator again after years of not using it.

What really annoys me, is that the cursor jiggles and flickers when I try to adjust a point. 

Is anybody else experiencing this? Is this the way Illustrator functions these days. It makes it very difficult to adjust lines.

Hi Anne,

 

We are sorry to hear about this. Would you mind checking & confirm if closing the other apps that are open helps with the flickering of a cursor or not?

 

Also, would you mind sharing a few details like:

  • OS & version of Ai
  • Which apps are you running simultaneously with Ai?
  • When did this start happening? Are there any recent changes made to your system? For example, any antivirus, system updates, plugins, or web extensions installed recently.

Let us know how it goes.

 

We will be looking forward to your response.
 

Regards,

Anshul Saini

I am using MacOs Monterey 12.1 and Illustrator Illustrator 16.0. I am using Blender and Photoshop simultaneously.

I just closed Blender. That didn't change anything. I am reluctant to close Photoshop as I constantly jump between Illustrator and Photoshop back and forth.

I just downloaded Illustrator yesterday, thus haven't made any changes. I believe the cursor has been jiggling the whole time.

Please do close Photoshop, just for testing if that is the issue.

Yes, I closed Photoshop and that resolved the shaking cursor. That is very inconvenient though as I always use Photoshop at the same time as I use Illustrator. Is there anything else that would allow me to have Photoshop running simutaniously?
