Am I doing something wrong? Often when I have an image grouped and I try to move it by dragging the stylus it starts to move and then gets broken apart - for instance one letter will break away from the word. I'm not lifting the stylus or tapping again. I think it's more pronounced when I zoom in.

Any tips?Confused

I don't know the answer or have any tips, but I've had that happen to me a lot, too. Thanks for asking this question. I hope you get some good advice soon.

i think it's the pressure of the stylus. it's happened to me too and i just very lightly use the stylus. it's like the pressure makes the g think you tapped twice instead of once (tapping twice makes the part of your image you are on turn purple and you can then manipulate it alone and not the group of images).

My gypsy drags slowly when I have a large group of images together. I have had a similar problem with a piece breaking off, usually because you accidentally select that individual image instead of the group. It will turn purple instead of blue when you do this. Just be careful where you grab the image group so you don't accidentally select just one item and drag slowly, that should help, as well as keep steady pressure with your stylus. I also just changed my screen protector to a different brand, to see if that will help with the screen sensitivity.

if this happens BEFORE you do anything else touch the button that has an arrow (right under the x on the basic page) and it will put it back the way it was. that's the undo button like on the computer.

Talulah & bethdoc thanks for all of your ideas. I'll be trying these out!

What type of screen protector are you using and does it help?
I bought a Zagg Invisible shield and I'm thinking of removing it. It's tough as nails but I came to the conclusion that I don't think my stylus is moving smooth enough on it.Unsure
