    Can't drag objects/text in InDesign CS5

    LeighSSMC

      I'm running Indesign CS5 on a Mac, 10.6.8 operating system. InDesign was working great, and then I stopped being able to drag items. I can select items (both with the regular selection tool and the direct selection toll), but I can't move them.  I can move them with the arrow buttons on my keyboard. I tried switching out my mouse, no luck. I tried a new document, same problem.  I restarted, same problem. I read in forums to erase InDesign's preferences, I did that, but the problem remains. None of the items are locked, etc. I have no idea what to do. Is there some keyboard shortcut I might have hit that preventing my from dragging items? Is this just an InDesign bug?  I recently installed the new updates for the entire creative suite, could that have done something? I'm not sure what else to do. Any help would be great!
