Yuri, 

Make sure you have "drag connected tracks" selected in the preferences
dialogue though, then it works fine for single components.  Just a pity
it doesn't work for entire selections (like on cadstar).  Works okay for
moving a couple of items, more and the move selection method is better. 

Take it easy.

Rich

Yuri,
        yes your suggestion would be the way that I performed that task.
I
believe that the drag function does not drag connected tracks, only the
component. So I guess it is not truly a drag function in terms of routed
connections.

Sincerely,
Brad Velander.

Hi Brad,

BV> The Drag command only seems to operate on singular items, one
component,
one
BV> track, one text item. It does not seem to work for selections of
multiple
BV> items. There is no Drag command for selections.

Drag command doesn't work and with singular objects also.

I press hot keys M, D then point component and try to drag it. But all
traces stay on their old places.

So lets me describe the initial problem:

My customer needs to change old pcb. He want move groups of components
and save routed traces near them.

Maybe it would be better to select group of objects, move selection,
then
lock it and reroute all traces around selection.

Really I want to know how to edit old pcb projects effectively.
