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!
You should be able to hold CTRL to get round this
Best part is the shake.
Just use the arrows keys :)
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.
Preferences > Guides, Grids & Slices > Gridline Every: 1 Pixel, Subdivisions 1 > Show Pixel Grid: On > Snap: On
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.
This GIF is blowing up across the internet. lol
This gif is causing me genuine anxiety.
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.
This is too funny—and too REAL!
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.
