Thanks Thomas,

That did the trick.  I right clicked and selected interactive routing on the
menu.  Up to that point the tool bar interactive button was working the same
as place line.  Now it works fine.  Thanks for the tip.

Craig

This happened to me once before.

For some reason Protel got stuck in the "place line" instead of interactive
routing mode.

I think the way I got it to work properly again was to right click somewhere
in the PCB editor work space and select the top menu item "Interactive
Routing".
