    Hello Rama, I recorded this issue the best way I could. Unfortunately in the video you can't see the cursor in Illustrator, because when I clicked, the cursor showed the two way arrows (the one that is for scaling), but every time I clicked and dragged (for resizing), it rotated. After I zoomed in, I could change the shape the way I wanted. As you can see, it's very frustrating that the action is not responding the way I want. This started happening in the later versions of illustrator. Before it was perfect the work flow between resizing, rotating and moving objects around.

    I agree, Illustrator has become incredible ******** regarding this issue. My solution at the moment is to exaggeratedly zoom in to be able to select accurately the object I want to edit. Hope they fix this.

    With every update, the selecting tool gets more retarded. As soon as I try to move an object around, it just rotates or scales it, instead of just simply moving it where I want. I'm working quite fast (many times copying and dragging objects with ALT key), and having to waste time by exaggeratedly zooming in just to be able to move an object is annoying. This didn't happen before. Something similar happens when selecting text to edit it (for example, for fixing the text or continue writing on that box), it will just create a new text box on top of the existing one, and again, you have to zoom in, make it big enough on the screen, and just then, it will be easy enough to select and put the cursor in the space you want to edit.
