AD: Object preview in wrong place

Recommended Posts

This is a bit of a difficult issue to describe, so I'll try with a picture:

When I open up a file, it looks more or less as it should (labels for artboards are off). When I try to select objects, though, I find the the actual object outlines seem to be  elsewhere.  I cannot edit the objects where they appear. This happens randomly, not always, and I have a feeling that it's related to me using an external monitor. Closing and reopening the file usually solves it


I'm working on macOS high sierra 10.13.4, 


Edit: Zooming in and out of the file using keyboard shortcuts seems to be causing the problem. It's as though  the preview zooms but not the outlines

Hi kemie,

Sorry the delay getting back to you. We are already aware of similar issues from other reports - it's probably related with the change of resolution/ppi between the two monitors not being detected or similar but as far as i know there still no fix for this (besides the workaround you discovered). I will check/update out logs with a link to this thread for reference. What type of connection are you using? HDMI?
