SWPCB 2018 schematic making unwanted connections when dragging components

When I move a component in a schematic, for some strange reason Solidworks PCB automatically connects any wires that happen to touch during the move. These automatic connections are unwanted and even dangerous. This is making it very difficult to organize my schematics, since moving a component often corrupts the wiring. Is there any way to turn this off? I looked at all the settings in File > System Preferences > Schematic but didn't find anything that would solve the issue. I have attached a gif showing the unwanted behavior.
