When I try to move objects, they jump back to their original spot. I have to try the same move repeatedly until it sticks. It's driving me mad! Not to mention, this is my job, so it's extremely time wasting!

What version of Photoshop are you using?
Have you installed all the Photoshop and MacOS updates?

I have CS6, and have the latest version of Yosemite installed. I just installed the Photoshop updates now, and the problem now seems to be on and off. I'm using a pen and track pad, and usually click on an object and hold down the command key to move it. I (Auto select is not selected by the way).

Did you also install the WhiteWindowWorkaround plugin for Photoshop CS6 (to work around known MacOS issues)?

Thanks Chris. The problem doesn't seem to be as bad since I installed the Adobe updates. Things are still jumping back occasionally but it's much better than before.
