Hi! Need some help. I'm using Indesign CC and when I try to select any object it jumps down and to the left without me actually moving it. Anyone experience anything similar and figure out a fix? It only happens once in a while but once it starts, I can't work within the document anymore.

HELP!

Can you provide more information? Try opening a new document and add an object - any object. Can you repeat this behavior in a new document? The closest I've ever come to what you are describing is when using step and repeat functionality. I don't think anyone can make the behavior you are describing happen in order to trouble shoot it.

Well I did a new document and it was not happening at first. Now it is again. I haven't done anything different than I used to. The only difference is that I updated to CC instead of CS6. Here's a video.

Thanks for the video... what workspace are you in? Can you post a screen shot of the entire application window with panels open? Have you recently worked on adding interactivity to your objects?

I just started having this same issue! When I click on an object, for example - a text box, it jumps to the left. A large jump, like say 50-100px. At first I thought maybe my arrows keys on my butterfly keyboard were getting stuck but they should only nudge it a pixel at a time. Then the other day, objects started jumping to the right. Today they're jumping to the left again. I have to reboot to fix.

I just had the same problem and I found the answer in my case. Maybe it applies to your case.

cs6 - Illustrator moves anything I select - Graphic Design Stack Exchange : https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/12664/illustrator-moves-anything-i-select

Whenever I select an object by clicking on it in Illustrator CS6, the second I move my mouse it moves the object. Is there a way around this? I just need to select an object and then change it's color or font but as soon as I move my mouse, the object is moved 3-4 pixels.

  • I had Rightzoom running in the background and once I turned it off, all was well.
  • Rightzoom was the culprit for me too.
    • Added it to the exceptions list and all is well in Illustrator land.

I am having the same issue, and across multiple documents- If I reboot everything it is solved for a little while then comes back.
