What is your Illustrator and OS versions?
Does it happen with Photoshop too?
Could you try resetting the software preferences and see if it fixes this issue?

- Windows users: Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift as you start Illustrator.

- macOS users: Option+Command+Shift as you start Illustrator.
Also check your keyboard.

And you are really sure that there aren't running any plugins in your Illustrator version? This looks like generated by some custom stuff.

Hello @Vinith516,

 

Sorry to hear about this experience. Would you mind trying to restart your computer in Safe Mode and then relaunching Illustrator to check if it helps?

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav
