When you select an object and move it, the object stays there and you drag, instead, a blue wireframe, or in the case of Text, a blue, ghosted copy of the text.
Am I the only one who thinks this is just clutter?
It's bad enough the original object doesn't come along for the ride when you are in the act of moving it.
I constantly have difficulty seeing what I'm doing by having 2 copies of the same thing, in aroundabout the same space. Especially when I'm tweaking a position.
Is there some conspiracy to make using Illustrator a headache?
I can't even be sympathetic because I have no clue why it works this way.
Would anyone care for a preference to have the original object temporarily vanish while moving it, keeping just the blue outline?
Hell, it's gotta go anyway; when you release the mouse it poofs from it's original spot and pops in the new one.
