FIX: Dragged objects shake in an SSIS 2012 project after you apply Cumulative Update 6 for SQL Server 2012

Consider the following scenario:
  • You apply Cumulative Update 6 for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 to a Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) instance.
  • You open an SSIS project, and you try to make some modifications to the project in Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT).
  • You select several objects, and you try to drag them onto the design surface. For example, you try to position a task on the Control Flow design surface or position a component on the Data Flow task design surface.
In this scenario, the selected objects shake while you drag them, and you cannot position them accurately on the design surface.
The issue was first fixed in the following cumulative update of SQL Server.

Cumulative Update 7 for SQL Server 2012 SP1
