While I hate to combine subjects, these are all loosely related by the issue of moving points.
So in certain instances, whether using the stretch commanding or simply using a grab point, WITH Ortho ON, I'll adjust a line and it will not adjust straight. If I pull down and to the right, it will stagger slightly. A measurable distance, not simply a display issue. If I pull down and to the left, I get a straight line. The exact opposite if I'm pulling up. Oddly enough this isn't noticeable going along the x-axis.
Also, when grabbing a point sometimes, the point itself will move, but not the object. I'm finding this typically related to leaders, but has happened with an object and or hatch occasionally.
It seems like with both these issues there must be some sort of underlying grid it's snapping to, and it happens more often than not with Ortho on. I've toggled every setting I can think of from polar, ortho, osnap, 3D, UCS, vectors, etc.
Only been on 2013 for a few weeks, is there a new set of reference grids/points I'm missing?
I'm unable to reproduce this, can you post an example drawing file which shows this unexpected result?
Indeed, having a sample drawing would be great.
Also, while your description of the problem is excellent, I think this is a case where a video of the behavior would be very helpful. You could attach the video to a forum post, or a link to view the video online. Many of us here use a freeware program called Jing for recording video, but you could use whatever you like. Jing creates online links where the videos can be seen.
If you have a microphone, that would be ideal, as you could narrate what you're doing and also point out when things don't function as expected. Many laptops have built in mics, and Jing can be configured to use them.
Also, did this not happen in a previous version? Which version were you using before 2013?
