Adobe Illustrator shift key won’t work

Hi!

I am Tony Lucas, and I am very much into Photography and Photo Editing.

I have been using Adobe Illustrator for months now, and suddenly I am caught up into one of its keys to work with.

Yeah, I am talking about the shift key. It was working fine, but I just don’t know if there are keys I have pressed to make it act up.

I am using the shift key to detain several objects, constrict sections, scale objects and the likes.

I guess this should be Adobe Illustrator’s issue, and not the keyboard as the other functions of shift key is working on another program.

Any help will be appreciated.

There can be two issues related with this problem.

First can b the preferences issue it can be solved by deleting the preferences (Ctrl+Alt+Shift = Cmd+Option+Shift).or go into Library > Preferences > Illustrator Preferences and throw them in the trash. You can reset all of your preferences the way you want them.

Second one is software conflict.

As u didn’t mention your operating system so there is a list of possible software that cause this problem in Win and Mac:
