Bob,

What command are you using to move the text/component?

If you use M C move component it is much faster than
using the left click and hold or M M move move command.

It is also possible to setup new hot keys for (M)ove 
(T)ext so that there is less database to search.

You can setup separate move commands for each type of object.
Track, Text, Polygon, Pad, Via etc. This also helps stop
having to select from the list of items when there are multiple 
objects at the same place.

Regards,
Darren Moore
