NOTE:  I posted this problem previously but somebody moved it to a thread about a similar issue in Photoshop CS6... Mouse issues (drag and right click do not work).  It may share that one click and drag similarity but it is NOT the same problem. That CS 6 issues was resolved and had something to do with 3rd party conflicts such as synergy, share mouse, etc. This one is more likely related to the recent CC 2015.5 update. Especially since I am not currently using 3rd party plugins. 

Back to the real issue:
I'm using Photoshop CC 2015.5 (mac OS X v. 10.9.5) and am having a move tool issue. If I click and drag a layer item to move it to another place, it snaps right back to its original spot. I have to nudge it into position via the arrow keys. A similar problem occurs when I attempt to copy a layer by clicking and holding the "alt" key to drag out a copy. It seems as if photoshop is following the command, but once you release the key, the copy vanishes as if it never happened. Additionally, I can not reposition artboards simply by clicking and dragging to a new place and still have nudge them to the desired location with arrow keys.  

All this nudging is extremely aggravating, highly time consuming and inefficient!  Are any of you having similar issues and is there a fix or at least a fix in progress available????

This problem resolved itself upon updating my Mac operating system to El Capitan 10.11.6.  I would have done this right away, but could not until the company allowed the system update.
