Kirk, what ServicePack version are you running?  If I recall correctly,
there was a feature/bug whereby the anchor/reference point for moving
selections was the BL corner of the selection box - and this was not
negotiable, nor on any particular grid.

I think this was rectified in SP5, but definitely SP6.  As Thomas mentioned,
when you Move | Selection, it should ask you for a reference point.  When
you select pin1, it may sometimes be beneficial to have SnapToCenter enabled
( Tools | Preferences | Options)

Cheers
Brendon.
