Rotation Handle Tolerance overrides scale and selection functionality while using Wacom.
Hiya. I have an issue with the Selection tool and the rotation handle functionality overriding both scale and shift+selection of other objects while using a Wacom.
Essentially, the rotation functionality tolerance seems to be 2-3 times higher than when using a mouse, which means that I have to zoom in far in order to either scale or select a nearby object.
This behaviour has been in every version of Illustrator since the original Illustrator CC - which behaved flawlessly.
I've also had it occur on 2 different computers with 2 different Wacom devices (Intuous 5 and Cintiq 13HD) and multiple versions of the Mac operating system (Yosemite through to Sierra).
You can see a video of the behaviour attached below.
1. Version of Illustrator: CC2018 (but same occurs in 2017, 2015, 2014)
2. Steps taken: Using the selection tool I attempt to shift+select a nearby object or scale the selected object.
3. Expected Result: Shift-selecting the nearby object or scaling the selected object.
4. Actual Result: The current object goes into rotate mode.
Apologies for marking it complete, that happened due to a conflict. Apologies for the same.
A small fix of the bigger problem was fixed in the last release and due to some confusion the original issue/thread was closed.
We have reopened the issue and it is under investigation right now.
With Best Regards,

Ashutosh, it's not fixed. The selection tool behavior in Illustrator feels pretty flawed in general (you should have a coffee with the guys from Indesign maybe;) :
- At different zoom levels certain tools are simply overriding others (e.g. rotate vs scaling) This happens with different tools at different zoom levels.
- Inconsistent behavior: E.g. the handle on the left side of a square might favor the scaling tool while the one on the right side favors the rotation tool. Sometimes deselecting and re-selecting an object changes behavior of the same handle.
- Different behavior between mouse vs Wacom (as stated by Chris above)

Not sure why an Admin states its fixed while its not?
After upgrading to 23.01 the problem persist (object rotates when I want to scale)

This is so annoying, we need keep zooming in out all the time jsut do very basic adjustments. Its horrible!!!
I can also report that the issue persist. It seems to be a conflict with "LiveShapes" when using a Tablet.
There is a way to deactivate LiveShapes though. You can find it here (Post 71): https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2028075?start=40&tstart=0
Helped for me

I'm posting back here to report that this issue persists in Illustrator CC2019 (v23.0)
Other users that I have asked have also reported that the problem persists on their end too.
Yeah, this is still an issue in RC3 :(
Fancy new features don't mean much when the basics are broken.
Sadly the problem still persists.
Does this work for anyone? This beta build doesn't seem to resolves the issue for me. (23.0.0 on Mac Sierra)
Yes, PLEASE can this be corrected??
This is reaaaally annoying

i am using a surface book pro and I have the same issue. it just started happening recently and its highly frustrating.
I don't think it's an issue with Wacom because I'm using a different brand tablet (Huion) and I have the exact same issue. It's very frustrating!
My wife and I (both Illustrator and Wacom users) are having the same problem. Hoping this is resolved in the latest version of AI.
I bought a Wacom Intuos Pro a few months ago, and I am very unhappy with the performance of it. Even less happy with the customer support. If this is a Wacom issue, they have lost me as a brand-loyal customer.
Comrades, are we barking at the wrong tree? Do you know if there's similar thread on the Wacom site?

This is still a problem for me and causing daily frustrations with Illustrator. For the time being, I just zoom really close to a shape...
Yes. This is a horrible problem for me. I actually cannot complete my work in my regular estimated time because of this.
GGRRRR this is a major one for me
may 10 2018 - still an issue.... Very annoying - please fix this - I agree withe the user, that wants focus on bugs like this, rather than on new features, that does not necessarily save time.... This bug is actually stealing time, and there is no workaround that will avoid this...
