Brad,
Try Select ALL  , Move Select   ( to another point).   See if this frees up
you polygons.  It has worked for  me with polygons and other primatives I
could not edit.

And please Altium   DO NOT MAKE Protel look and feel like Accel.  If I
wanted Accel I wouldnt have returned it for a full refund several years ago.
