Hi Juul,

try a reset of Adobe Illustrator preferences. Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (macOS) as you start Illustrator. The new preferences files are created the next time you start Illustrator.

It's the first item - Keyboard increment - on the first panel - General... Hard to find.

Just in case, check if your keyboard increment is set to something absurdly small (Preferences > General).
