I have been using Illustrator for 19 years, so I'm not exactly new to it. I've been using the round corner widget for a while now. At first, it annoyed me when it would round the corner when that wasn't what I wanted it to do. NOW, when I want to round the corner, it's rotating the object when I click on the widget. I'm zoomed all the way in and all it want to do is rotate. This is frustrating, I don't want to cut the rotate feature off because I use that as well. Has anyone else experienced this?

With your experience, I'm sure you're aware the rotate function should become available when the pointer is outside the bounding box, whereas the corner widget is typically seen on the interior (acute side of a given path-angle apex). So it seems you're truly seeing a malfunction; the kind of malfunction that can often be cleared up with a reset of preferences. Have you tried that?

I reset the preferences and it's still doing it. I am inside the box, hovering over the corner widget. The selection tool shows a curve under it. I click on the widget and it rotates.

Ugh. I guess it's more questions then...

Have you tried it with the Direct Select tool?

What is your input device? Latest driver?

Did it just start doing this out of the blue?

Is it happening in a particular file, or all files? A particular object, or all objects?

Have you seen any other odd behaviors connected to mouse-clicks?

is there a chance illustrator thinks you're using a touch device?

I am just experiencing the same troubles. I have HP spectre with touch screen and pen support, however I have not had this issue with surface pro. For illustrator I am using the program in laptop mode and mith standart keyboard and mouse.

Is there any solution to this?

I'm currently having this problem - it started out of the blue. One moment the corners are rounding, as usual, the next it's just trying to rotate the shape. Very frustrating, would love to see solutions to this - it's funny because I'm using an HP spectre too but somehow I doubt it has to do with my device because this is a new issue all of a sudden.

Same for me. I'm using a triangle shape so the widget is extremely close to the edges, but I hover over the widget, see the curve shows under the selection tool, and then when I click, it starts rotating the triangle. I would love to see this bug fixed.

Please create a new thread and tell us your system and version and what exactly you are doing.

Also: Screenshots help understand.

 

Did you already reboot the computer?

This has been happening to me for more than half a year now (I recall first noticing this behaviour around Feburary or March). It's now November and several updates later, and it's still sticking around. Same behaviour as what the original post describes - hovering over the Live Corner widgets shows the cursor change, but then when I click and drag it the whole object rotates as well. Has the Illustrator team been able to replicate or experience the same problem? It's frustrating and slows down my workflow a lot.

Hello friends, here is the solution to that nasty Adobe bug 🙂

- create a new doc

- create your form BIG, I mean fill the full page

- do your job: it will not rotate. 

- copy/paste on your original document : everything is ok!

Try anything trick like that I think it should work too
