I want to complain about Microsoft personnel here in who continually close threads about being unable to move objects in SSIS-DTBI in Visual Studio 2012.  They keep saying it is fixed in CU3, when it is emphatically not (CU3 doesn't even apply to Visual Studio).

Here are these threads

Here is the problem:

There are multiple usability problems moving objects on the Control Flow interface in SSIS 2012 (in Visual Studio 2010): Moved objects have a tendancy to fly off a huge distance away from the source for no apparent reason. You cannot move objects beyond the top edge of the existing surface, beyond a tiny margin. The functionality in the 2008 version to auto-connect and position new objects has been removed. 

On my development box I Installed Visual Studio 2012 Premium then installed SQL Server 2012 SP1 and after that SQL Server Data Tools 2012. When moving any SSIS object on the canvas the objects shake and jiggle around the location my mouse is as I drag it. Sometimes it randomly relocates itself to the top left hand corner. This is a brand new project with only a few objects on the canvas. 

Visual Studio Professional 2012 version 11.0.60610.01 Update 3
SQL Server Data Tools 11.1.31009.1
