Illustrator randomly will stop allowing me to click and drag items
In Illustrator (most recent version), at random times, it will stop allowing my to select or drag anything in my art. I can still select and adjust elements in the panels but the actual art elements won't work. I am using a mouse and have tried with both trackpad and mouse but neither changes anything. If I select an element, I can move them with the directional buttons but it's impossible to use the mouse to do so. Please fix this as soon as possible!

I am unable to move any object whether it is text or a shape by clicking and dragging it. I can move it by selecting coordinates, using arrow keys and the align buttons. I do not have outlines on. I have tried restarting multiple times.

this is the most obnoxious and persistent bug in illustrator by far. please fix this. i end up doing things over and over and over again because of this. i work in really precise drawings and when moving a handle, anchor or line carefully to to the precise location, it just goes back.
i can't stress enough how frustrating this long running bug is.
I am experiencing since last few updates, the nodes if we want to move after converting type to outlines or any object, snaps back to its original position. Seems to be a bug and annoying as it is not allowing to move the node to desired position.
Anyone having this issues and any solution to this?

Illustrator Version 24.2.1
After a couple hours of work in Illustrator CC, the click and drag feature stops working. This applies when using the all select and direct select tools when dragging anything from objects to corner points. The object (or point) highlights to show it's selected, but won't budge when dragged.
This started happening after the most recent CC update to Illustrator this week (~08.26.19). Haven't figured out what triggers it yet. Restarting the program fixes the issue, for now.
