    Does this ever happen to anyone else? It always seems to be on the one darn value I want to stop it at (590 in this example). Adobe must have an agreement with Apple, they implement this... I 'accidentally drop' my mouse!

    Always doing that! And when I finally get the right size, I release and Photoshop remove 1px. Every time.

    We should submit that as a bug.

    This happens to me a daily. I've learned to zoom in before transforming something.

      Yeah same here. Although there's times when I think 'Nah...I'll be able to get it on target without zooming'. Its like a lottery. The PS Transform lottery. Adding a little risk to my day ya know...

    When that happens, I usually dive for the number input at the top. They accept pixel values.

    For those seeing the issue: Are you using a trackpad or Magic Mouse, and do you have Flick Panning turned on in Preferences?

      Hey Marc, am using a Magic Mouse and I just checked and Flick Panning is turned on. Do you recommend turning it off?

        I find it annoying and the cause of some random panning issues, so yep, I turn it off. I haven't seen the issue the GIF shows, but I've had flick panning off since it was introduced.

        I do have some other whacky similar glitches in Illustrator, but that's another story.

        I think I've misinterpreted the issue. The problem is not being able to hit an exact position, not the cursor throwing a tanty? I've definitely seen Photoshop throw input spasms before, but disabling flick panning helped. Illustrator does it all the time for me and I haven't found a solution.

        I typically don't have this positioning issue, but only because I zoom in a lot when editing. I do have the issue where selections and creating objects ends up 1px off what I wanted though. That one really sucks.

    CSS snaps to the specified pixel. Every time.

    mate, holding the control button when I resize/move objects give me precise pixels, else, select the nodes and nudge.

      I should have mentioned in the original post, this was with ctrl held down for precision mode. It will happily go from 485..486..487..488..489.....491! It's like Photoshop knows the number I want and skips it haha. Only happens sometimes, but it's one of those things that makes me laugh/sigh/cry evertime.

    Happens all the time, at least if its a vector object you can change sizes from the toolbar.

    This gets on my nerves every other time I try to resize something. -_-

    The other fun one is when you use the rectangular marquee selection tool and draw out a selection using the info box diligently for precision, don't move the mouse at all, release the mouse button and POP! it shifts one pixel on the x or y axis.
