Connector between objects sometimes maps to location on canvas and can't be moved

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
For one sticky only when I try and add a connector, the connector will only map to a point on the canvas, not to another object

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
Select connector tool, select object, draw connector

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.
Sorry, can’t

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?
Only tried desktop

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
Mac 10.15.7

Hey there,

This could be a known issue but we’ll need more information. What type of object are you trying to draw the connector on?

A sticky. However the connection problem seems related to the canvas (and/or zoom level).
No matter what sticky or connector I try the the end point jumps to a point on the canvas unrelated to any object (NW of a diamond decision box. Can’t find any hidden objects) But only at that point on the canvas and at that zoom level. Just discovered If I zoom in I am able to connect the end point to an object (diamond)
If I move the objects to a different location I can make connections as designed at the original zoom level.
