Today I have allowed Illustrator to upgrade to 25.2.2 after it nagging me to do so for a while (I was probably about 2/3 versions behind). I now regret it as I now have two issues which I've never had before.
Layer pane: I can no longer move layers in the layer pane by clicking on them and dragging to the new position as I could before and also cannot move items on an artboard unless they show a
Objects: Objects now cannot be moved by selecting the object and dragging to the new position unless they show a box at the center. If they do clicking and holding the cursor at this point allows me to move the object otherwise I can only move using the cursor keys and trying to move with the mouse results in the ding sound you hear if you try to select something while a dialog is open.
Is there some change in the last few versions that I've missed ? Or is there some way to fix this behaviour ?
I am not experiencing that on win 10 or Mac Catalina. Have you tried restarting your computer? Do you have nonalphanumeric characters in your layer name?
Yep have restarted with no difference. No layer names are either default names from when layer was created or standard a-z characters.
Have reverted to previous versions even as far back as it will allow (24.3) and the issue is still there. This is incredibly frustrating.
After completely uninstalling Illustrator, restarting the machine and then reinstalling the issues are now gone. No idea what caused them.
