Mouse drag to move objects is not working

Hi All,

I am facing a strange issue. I can't able to drag any object in my application to rearrange even though I enabled the Admin Override Security and Move/Resize in the Layout properties. But still I am not able to drag any object.

Anyone is having any idea about this?

Thanks,

Manu

Enable Caption on your object.

Then drag by holding the caption.

Caption was already enabled. Moreover I am not able to move the text objects as well by mouse drag

Hi

Check the sheet properties -> Security -> Allow move/Size sheet objects is checked?

I can but I think the problem is with the user preferences or my qlikview client. Because this problem suddenly came today.. I have multiple applications in my system and this drag is not working for any application. So there might be no problem with the application but some settings might got changed.

Hi Manu,

I'm experiencing the same problem. Working with QV 11.2 SR5 on Windows 8.1 laptop. Suddenly I can't drag and drop objects with my mouse. The keyboard shortcuts are still working. Did you find a solution? Re-installing QV desktop client only worked for a day(?)

Hi. As this post remains unanswered I just thought I'd add my experience and the solution that worked for me.

What worked:

I shut down my computer, started it back up again, problem solved.

What happened:

I was setting up various charts, list boxes, etc and dragging them around to where I wanted them when I suddenly found I was no longer able to move objects.  I had not been into any settings (user, document, sheet or object) so I knew it couldn't be to do with the "Allow Move/Size" options, despite this I still checked an sure enough, the box still had a tick in it.

I quit QlikView and started it again but his did not work. I opened a previous version of the document and I was able to drag objects around. Eventually, I restarted my computer and this seemed to cure the problem.
