Turn off the newfangled snapping stuff... Known issue.
Awesome thanks, that's an easy fix.
Shame to disable the snapping tool, but if that's the only way to workaround this I guess it's worth it. I hope Adobe will be working on a fix for this..
This is fixed in the AFter Effects CC (12.1) update, which will be out in a couple of weeks.
Also, you don't need to turn of snapping in all cases. This problem only exists when a layer in the composition is scaled to 0%.
Thanks for the reply Todd, glad to hear about the update.
Do you mean this occures only when a random layer in the composition is scaled to 0%, or The layer you're trying to reposition is scaled to 0%?
Because this has been happening to me also when layers were set at 100% scale, and recently I noticed this happes also with simple text layers.
Either way, chances are quite high that in a given comp you'll have at least one layer scaled to (or with a keyframe) set at 0%.

Scale it to .01 instead of 0 and the problem should go away. (Or wait a couple of weeks for the update. )
