It is not part of a group, all of the 'snap' type functions are disabled, yet when I click on my object and try to drag it, it won't move. It will re-size, but it won't budge. I worked on a project a while ago and everything was fine. I tried again with the previous project and nothing will move on it now, either! Argh!
I am not at my regular computer so I'm trying to see the program in my head. I believe you can move the object via the position tab. Either right-click the object or select it and click on the part of the status bar at the bottom that shows the object's position. Go to the position tab and type in new co-ordinates. Let me know if this works. If it is greyed out, I suspect the object has been locked. Let me know if this is your situation.
Thanks, lindarobin. Whatever the gremlin was, it seems to have fixed itself. Everything works fine now. My last two PS have been a little buggy, too. Always seems to happen when I need to finish a project in a hurry.

I'm glad it's working again. If it keeps happening, a computer cleanup helps everything run more smoothly. If that doesn't completely take care of the problem, a clean reinstall of the program after a computer cleanup should do the trick.

The clean install and computer cleanup info can be found near the top.

Any time a corrupted installation is suspected, a clean reinstall after a computer cleanup will not remove all corruption - primarily because a standard uninstall of many Broderbund/Encore programs will leave orphaned files and invalid registry entries behind. And, even though a computer cleanup will remove many invalid registry entries, a computer cleanup will not remove either the orphaned files or the registry entries which reference those orphaned files.
So, the recommended solution for dealing with a corrupt installation is to click on the link below
