Drag Staves without shaking the whole score. soooooo annoying!

I'm editing 160 orchestral pieces this week and i have to extract each part individually and edit it. I don't know why, I try to drag the staves and it never happens smoothly, it keeps shaking and ending in all the places I don't want it to be. Does it have something to do with the engraving rules?
