Hi all. Have been working with Illustrator for years and recently bought a new mac. Since loading CS4 on I have been getting this weird thing happing when I am trying to use type, I can't move the text easily like I used to! Seem to have to click EXACTLY in the right place to be able to do it. Tried looking in the preferences but can't see anything about selecting.
ALSO I am getting an error when I am trying to edit some type. When I highlight the text and try to type I get 'can't edit the type' and it won't let me type anything. Having to get round it by typing new and restyling which is really annoying.
This sounds like preference corruption.
You may try to Cmd+Option+Shift during startup.
The ultimate solution may be an uninstallation/reinstallation, preferably using the Clean Script http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cs4clean.html
