I ran into this problem with pre-SP5 (SP2) on a Win98 box. I have been using
SP5/W2K for 6 months and recently moved to SP6; no designs since SP5/W2K
have had this sort of problem. Has anyone seen this behavior on SP6/W2K?

"*" in SP6


I think that's why many people haven't noticed this bug - it's easy to just
think you forgot to enter the information.

I knew exactly what happened because I only had 2 parts on the page, and had
just finished lining up the part field text. I didn't even notice they
disappeared (after the drag) until after I printed the page out.
