Element shifts when clicked

This is a tiny issue but super annoying. When I click on a freehand element (text, shape, etc.) it sometimes shifts up and over by about five pixels or so. It's small, but just enough that I have to ctrl+z and reselect, or realign the element I clicked. Is it because I'm using a mac super mouse?

When selecting objects with the Wacom stylus, the same problem occurs. It is very annoying.

Hi @Lara Olsen, @dez, and @zayn,

Thanks for reaching out to us in our Community thread and I'm sorry to hear you're encountering this object shift/drift when clicking on your element within Freehand.

For us to assist in troubleshooting this further, would it be possible to provide the following details?

  • What browser and operating system are you using to access Freehand?
    - For your browser, you can get these details by going to, clicking “Copy”, and pasting the link it gives you here.
    - For your operating system, please take a screenshot of your About Mac or About Windows screen and paste a here.
  • If using our mobile application, can you provide the version number you are on?
  • Can you provide a screenshot or screen recording of the issue you are having?

Thank you,

Lara Olson

My post was like 4 months ago, but right now I use Chrome 111. 
I've stopped using Invision since none of my stakeholders could get past (or did not want to get past) the login creation required to view whiteboards. 

It looks like the issue still occasionally happens.

How do I send you the clip?
