Re: move problem

mine works fine at 100% and 125%. it would be nice if they could make it work at 150% but i can work around the problem. i don't feel good about a rookie newb making waves about someone else's work. we're lucky to have this software. maybe one of you pros might mention it. thanks.

Re: move problem

it only jumps while i'm holding left mouse button and dragging and it's always down and to right. that's what doesn't make sense to me. why is it always in same direction? i've never had this problem with other drawing packages such as Acad, Solidworks, etc. i may try loading it on another new compu...

Re: move problem

no, i'm not talking about the lag time to redraw. i understand that and it doesn't bother me. i worked with ACAD with some of the first computers 35 years ago...talk about a delay, lol. i have a fast processor, 860@2.8ghz, and 4gb of ram so the delay is minimal. the cursor jumping off the screen is ...

Re: move problem

yes it does move faster but it still occasionally jumps down and to right about 200 pixels each way. when i draw a box around an area to select objects, seems it doesn't jump as much if i start at the right side and drag to left. seems it shouldn't make a difference. i should use layers but i'm just...

Re: move problem

it says my file is too big to attach. it's only 5 words but some are interpolated.
also, when i click and drag a box to make a selection, sometimes it even jumps off the screen.
i have an Intel Core i7 processor 64 bit, 4gb ram. reckon it doesn't like 64 bit?

Re: move problem

just text but has been converted to paths and interpolated to make 3d text. any object i try to move may jump too far. the nodes in gradients jump too far when i'm trying to adjust their position.
i've only asked 2 questions.

Re: move problem

i have disabled all snap functions. when i'm moving a text, it will jump completely off page. it does the same thing when moving gradient pointers. seems it always moves down to right.

Re: tool selection

windows 7 using a mouse and i see the pointer. the button doesn't engage or change. i can select with function keys but it won't always select with pointer over buttons. sometimes if i hit escape key then it will let me select button with pointer.

sometimes when i have a tool selected, say TEXT tool, and try to go to selection tool, it won't change to SELECT tool. i have to hit F1 to change to select. it happens a lot going from any tool to another tool. any ideas? thanks.

move problem

when i try to move text by holding left mouse button, sometimes it jumps around and moves very far. there is not a steady movement to where i want. the more complicated the text, the slower it moves and jumps more. what would cause this? i've been careful to stay off move bars. i'm using a wireless ...
