    I am creating EGDR for VFR scenery and have inserted the first runway but ADE will not allow me to move it, After highlighting I can rotate the runway but not move it to its correct position. The maual says I should be able to move it by dragging but this does not happen. Any help would be appreciated, am I doing/not doing something stupid

    I am using Vista with SP1

    Hi David,

    There should be no problem dragging a runway unless you have inadvertently locked it:

    George is correct. There are a couple of ways to lock runways to stop them being accidentally moved or deleted

    If the tooltip for the runway has a yellow background check that you have not locked runways - Look in the Lock menu and maje sure that runways is not ticked. If it has a pink backgroun then select it, right click it and then uncheck the lock object entry.

    I suspect the first of the two.

    Many thanks for your help. It was locked in the "Lock" menu. Sorry didn't think of looking there I assumed that there would be a tick\cross in the Lock box on the main view. Now I know
    Again many thanks

    Good to know it is fixed. The issue of the missing tick has been raised before. That box is ticked when the user locks something rather than having an application wide lock. We need to update our documentation :eek:
