Click and touch release problems Illustrator CC 2018 Mac High Sierra - cause dictation software
Illustrator v 22.0.1, Mac OS High Sierra on Macbook Pro 2016, touch bar, 2.9GHz Intel core i7, 16GB 2133MHz LPDDR3
Clicking, tapping, with trackpad or wireless mouse (Kensington wireless Turbo Mouse trackball): click/tap does not release, so the object is highlighted or selected and stuck to the cursor as you move it around.
In the layers palette, (The new Properties/Layers) clicking/tapping a layer lock to unlock it may unlock it with a delay, or lock/relock it. The same goes for view/hide visibility for layers. The response is difficult to interpret, possibly because of delays. But it not possible to use the application at all, with trackpad or mouse. I do not have another mouse, but will try with one if I can acquire one.
Discussions in the community have noted this behavior with Illustrator CC 2018 and High Sierra, and some suggested turning off GPU in performance preferences. This does not solve the problem.
This kind of issue does not occur in any other application, Adobe or otherwise, in Mac OS High Sierra.
We are not hearing any more comments on this thread. If you still run into this problem due to Dictation software, please reach out to Support.

I am having the exact same issue. Sticking cursor, almost impossible to draw because it selects and deselects without clicking. Resizing, selecting tools, everything is painful...
After multiple calls, the best they think to do is blame it on Wacom or the graphics card - but it is only Illustrator and only after the High Sierra update. Turning off GPU maybe slightly helps but not really. Mac, of course, blames the software. Somebody help!
