Can't nudge anchor points using subselect tool? (CS5)

Aug 20, 2010 8:26 PM

I've been experiencing an intermittent issue in Flash CS5 where sometimes I can't nudge anything using the subselect tool. Sometimes I can, but most of the time I can't, and I don't know why.


I can still click-and-drag points (or multiple points/paths), but I can't nudge them using the keyboard.


Any ideas?

    My guess is the item is grouped and your are editing inside the group? For some reason in that case you can't nudge the points in that manner.


    Break the group apart and try it again. Sorry that is the only answer I know.

    Glad that worked out. Because otherwise I would have been at a loss. I know the day I was having that problem I was almost at the brink of a break down...
