Bug: Moving between screens with different scaling
When click-dragging a property's numerical value (e.g. position or scale), if the mouse cursor crosses onto a screen with a different scaling setting in Windows Display Setttings to the one with AE in it, the value jumps. The bigger the difference in scaling, the bigger the jump.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, the problem still persists in 17.7. I'm on Windows 10 20H2.
The issue is dragging on a property's number and the held mouse crossing from a 1440p screen at 100% scaling to a 2160p screen at 150% scaling (as set in Windows Display Settings).
This happens a lot because the numbers are on the left-hand side of the right-hand screen (100%), so reducing property values inevitably cross onto my left-hand screen (150%) and the value jumps massively.
The problem goes away if I set both screens to the same scaling in Display settings.
Thank you for filing this report. Do you still experience this jump when dragging in the latest version of After Effects ( 17.7 )? There have been improvements in how AE handles cases like the one you've described, but I'm not 100% the improvement would have covered your specific case. What OS are you using?
Thanks very much for any additional information,
