Objects jumping after releasing mouse
on Oct 20, 2011 at 8:23:11 pm

Hello all,

I hope I can explain this without the benefit of video... I just started having a weird problem in Illustrator CS5. When trying to do some precise placement of objects and points, I notice that the objects/points are moving slightly from where I intended. For example, I am trying to place the end point of a line on top of the end point of another line. I am zoomed in all the way, I drag the point into JUST the right place, smart guides are on and read "intersect"—in other words, it's locked in, right in place. Then, when I release the mouse button, the point jumps diagonally up or down a few clicks. It's really weird too, because sometimes it will jump say, up and to the left, sometimes down and to the right. The only constant is that I can't place things where I want them. It is driving me nuts!

Has anyone else had this problem? I have tried everything. Smart guides on/off, all the guides are off, snap to point, snap to grid, etc. all off. I have deleted my preferences and .plist and restarted... This is version 15.0.2 and I don't think there is an update available.

Any help or advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!

Initially I thought it might be 'Snap to Grid', but you said you checked that.
I don't have any other thoughts. I'm not sure. I guess I was just wondering if you've made any progress with this issue?

Yeah, snap to grid wasn't the issue.

I just figured it out. There is a check box on the Transform panel that was set to "Align to pixel grid." That solved it. Thanks!

I'm having this same issue, but turning off align to pixel grid did not solve it. It's frustrating because the projects I'm currently working on are often several feet long, so I can't tell if my graphics are off my artboards unless I zoom ALL THE WAY IN, which adds significant time to my workflow.

Any additional suggestions / solutions would be very much appreciated.
