I have a multiple page schematic in Capture. Only on one of this schematic have the symbols and nets have become immovable (or locked). When I click on the symbol and try to move it a Yellow triangle with a "!" inside appears next to the part. I can moved the symbol around on the screen but when I let off the mouse button to drop it does not drop. I can only release the symbol by right clicking or press the ESC key, and then it returns to its original position. It has essentially locked the schematic page to any further changes.
Has anybody else experienced this? Any help would be appreciated.

I also have this type of problem if I drag or copy paste a symbol or off page connector or a net, on an existing net or want to join to pin by dragging the same problem occur.
temporarily I drag the component to the vicinty of that component which I want to join(not connect them directly and the you can join them by a new net.
It is not a professional way but it works can any one help us.
Thanks & Regards
I found the solution of this problem.
in capture there is a tool named "drag connected object".
if you are facing this problem click on this tool your problem will be solved.
Just in case anyone else stumbles over this and wonders what it is all about, if the drag connected objects is active (red triangle) then you can drag a symbol that is attached by wires and drop it down anywhere, even if this creates new junctions (i.e. by dragging one wire over another).
If you have the drag connected objects turned off (no red triangle) then you can only release a dragged symbol if doing so would not alter the net list. The yellow triangle is shown on an object while dragging if the net list would change were the part to be dropped right now.
