Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about this trouble. That's not the typical experience with Illustrator. Let us help you fix this. Could you please provide a few more details like:

 

  • OS and version of Illustrator
  • What type of graphics (jpeg/png/ psd) are these? 
  • Is the issue related to a specific document? If yes, could you please share the document with us? You can upload it to the Creative Cloud (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/share.html) and share the download link. 
  • When did this start happening? Are there any recent changes made to your system? For example, any antivirus, system updates or web extensions installed recently. 

 

We’re here to help, just need more info.   

 

Regards,

Srishti

Thanks for sharing the details.  There is no such version like 23.4. Do you mean 24.3? I would also like to know how the other modifier keys working? Does Shift drag Align the objects properly?

 

Try booting the system into Safe Mode (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/x-productkb/global/start-safe-boot-mode-mac.html) and check how it works there.

 

Regards!
