Jon ,

it is supposed to drag track endpoints. Does not drag selection. Hope you did not pay 
ATS.

Yes, I know how to enable the VERY limited drag tracks with component
feature in Protel, but it is VERY limited!  I want to be able to drag tracks
with a selection, and maybe have the option of dragging all tracks that pass
through the region, as well.  It really does a poor job of this.  I also seem to
remember that it drags the tracks, rather than dragging the track ENDPOINTS,
which would be MUCH more useful.  That would keep the tracks connected.

How about selecting a bunch of track segments, either within region or by
toggle selection, and then doing a drag on all of them, just like it does a
drag on one track.  I seem to remember that it can't do this, either.
It breaks the tracks rather than rubberbanding the connected track
segments.
