Jon,

in PCB Editor you go to Tools->Preferences->Options->Component Drag and choose 
Connected Tracks mode. That would enable you to drag tracks. It works as it always 
did, since the DOS times. I have W2K and P99SE SP6. It drags the first segment of the 
track connected to the component. And while you are in the drag mode, you can't rotate 
the component. That's something I never really liked. Maybe someone would like to put 
that on the list for the DXP release. For me, with the ATS and the inflated pricing 
expected for the DXP, upgrade is a very, veeery distant possibility. 

Igor

Yes, and I really MISS it!  Protel used to do this, back in the Win 95
days.  Accel's tango did it very well, too.  I used to do this when tightening
up a design after a first run at routing it.
