Unable to move objects with selection tool - Help! - Adobe Indesign Windows

Today I loaded up inDesign and all of a sudden I can't use the selection tool to move objects. I can move them with transform or the keyboard, but not with dragging. I have restarted the computer, tried this on new doents, and tried out every setting and menu I can find. Anyone know what happened? Tony...

    If it's only on one file and you're sure there's nothing locked or on
    master pages, try export it as INX and then opening that file in ID.

    It seems to be an application-wide problem. Even in new doents I cannot move objects.

    First off I'd do the ubiquitous solution of trashing your preferences, but then I'd start looking at your drivers: Mouse and video. (Even if other apps aren't affected.)

    Might be worth checking your keyboard shortcuts.

    Oh wait, that was intended for the person whose delete key wouldn't work. Ah well, I'll go back to sleep now.

    Trashing the preferences worked!
    Thanks!
