Georeferencing issues

I recently upgraded to 10.5 from 10.2.1. Everything was going fine until I tried to georeference. Everything would be fine until I hit 'Update Georeference' at which point the tiff would move to a different location. Usually it would just be scooted down, but every now and then it would be moved off into no man's land. I researched trying to find out what the issue might be but couldn't come up with anything.


This morning I upgraded to 10.6 hoping that maybe it was just a weird quirk in 10.5 but the same thing happened in 10.6. I was able to georeference one tiff just fine, but the second one was shifted south as soon as I hit 'Update Georeferencing'. Has anyone experienced this and know how to fix it? Georeferencing is a large part of my job and I really need this issue fixed.


Some notes:

-My coworker is experiencing the same thing so it shouldn't be something with my computer.

-My georeferecning workflow consists of turning a PDF into separate tiffs and then bringing those tiffs into ArcMap.
