Objects jumping around when moving

Since I have done the latest Illustrator update, sometimes when I go to move an object with the selection tool, holding shift to keep the object level, the object won't move where I want it to. A green circle with a plus sign in the middle of it appears, and the object jumps all over the screen or jumps back to where it was, and makes a sound. It is very frustrating. It isn't a snapping issue. I have never had this problem until recently.

I've just managed to do a video of the issue. I thought it was just when holding shift, but it isn't. It can be when moving any object.

Smart Guides and the shift key (for restricted transforming) don't cooperate well.

Try it without the shift key and let the smart guides guide you (the mark the horizontal/vertical move). Or turn off the smart guides.

The issue isn't only when I hold the shift key, and I don't ever have smart guides turned on, so it's nether of these things. It's never done it before in years of using Adobe Illustrator, so there is clearly a glitch somewhere.

And you also don't have Snap to grid or snap to pixels turned on?

 

Does it work in a new document?

No, I don't have any of those turned on, they drive me mad! It has happened in every document I have worked on in Illustrator probably for the last month.

Are you on Monterey 12.3?

And have you been on that system for the last month?

I have the same issue! I can't move my objets properly! They always snap back into place.

I really think it's an Adobe glitch with some update. I work on a MacBook pro Montery 12.0.1 in Ai 2022. 

Feels like it's a bug they could fix. It's very frustrating when working long hours in AI.

I think so too. It is really frustrating, and it really does waste a lot of time when you add up the hours spent using Illustrator.

Hi All,
@laurah34528772 @Catharina5F94 @Stillwater2363147062y4 @Fatih2182095838g0 

 

Sorry for the trouble. Multiple users have reported this issue. The green + sign shows up file moving/ dragging an object.

We have logged a bug with the product team, and they have started investigating the issue. I would request you to share a few details like:

  • Please confirm the OS you are using @Adriana23624888zgxa
  • Please confirm you are running Illustrator v26.1
  • Please confirm you are using Apple Magic.
  • Is this issue replicable if you revert to an older version of Illustrator?

 

Also, I would request you to upvote the following UserVoice if not done already.
(https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/44914921-v26-1-...)

 

Please share this information. It would be really helpful for us.

 

Regards,

Anshul Saini

Hi All,

We are sorry for the trouble. 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.)

 

Regards,

Anshul Saini
