    This has been extremely frustrating, paying a monthly fee for months without being able to get work completed. I have lost my artistic expression for a bit from the aggravation. I also spent $200. for IT tech to look at my computer for issues. Not being able to have my curser let go of objects has fried my last nerve. I HOPE THIS FIX WORKS, AND CAN WE GET A REBATE????

    Only reason I use Illustrator CC 2018 at the moment, is because 2017 started using 100% cpu. I would have gone back to even older version (newest version of illustrator have had problems in past).

    If I install latest build for version 23.0 to fix the issue "Move/Copy Artwork with artboard" in 22.1. And lets say other coworkers still use 22.1. Will the .ai file be compatible between different versions without any issues?

    My artboard with my design wortk will not quit moving. I have tried to restart Illustrator and it takes forever to bringg the file back up. I have restarted my computer, This is driving me crazy. My desiggn was due tonight.

    This is still an issue, and very disruptive to my normal workflow. Unchecking "Move artwork with artboard" also fails when using the align and distribute tools for artboards in the properties panel

    1. ai 22.1 (x64)
    2. Select artboard with artboard tool. Option "copy/move artboards with the content" is disabled. Press any arrow key on keyboard to move artboard.
    3. I expect what the artboard will be moved wihout contents
    4. Artboard moved wih contents

    Moving an artboard with arrow keys ignores setting for "Move/Copy Artwork with artboard" The issue is still there. Did you manage to come with a solution for this issue?

    Same here. I can click on/off the button, but artworks keep moving with the artboard.
