The screen is constantly shifting to the right

Hello everybody. I got a problem in figma. The screen is constantly shifting to the right, by itself. As if I pressed the right arrow on the keyboard. Restarting figma and restarting the computer did not help. I didn’t press any buttons or combinations, I just switched from google chrome to figma, and it started by itself

I am experiencing the same strange phenomenon that someone else did in this forum. The screen is constantly shifting to the right even I am not clicking on anything. All that happens is the mouse pointer is within the design window. When I move it out, it stops. If I turn off the keyboard it still does it. If I reboot the computer, it still does it. What is going on?

For some reason I can’t include links in my topic description. The other topic identical to this one is + the-screen-is-constantly-shifting-to-the-right/9224. You’ll have to cut and paste intelligently to refer to the other topic I am talking about. Weird I can’t reference it here.

My screen is automatically moving to the right on it’s own. I have restarted Figma and my laptop but it is still doing the same thing. I’m also sure I did not press any buttons to trigger this. Help please

I’m having a recurring issue where Figma scrolls to the left on it’s own and I have to restart the program to get back to work. I try to deselect everything by clicking on an empty space or making sure I only have 1 layer selected in the Layers panel so that it’s nothing related to what I’ve selected but I can’t figure out the cause. Can anyone assist with stopping this behavior?

Also, is there a keyboard shortcut for Deselect All?

Just note that I was having a similar problem that ultimately was the fault of the USB connection for my keyboard/mouse of all things.

Just to verify that it is not something like that, I would try the same access/activity from a different computer.

If that works, then try the same access/activity after disconnecting your keyboard/mouse and/or replacing it temporarily with something else borrowed.

You can press Esc to cancel your selection.

Thank Douglas! Worked for me… Just replugged my USBs.
