Migrated drawings from I-deas to NX.
When I try to do a "move copy" of lines and text, sometimes it works, but most often does not. I am using the "Move Object" command. The type of stuff that I am trying to copy is change column text and lines, imported from an I-deas drawing. I can add the lines to a sketch with the "add existing lines" command, but then I can't select text with the lines.
The odd thing is, that sometimes it has worked right out of the box. I would just select the text and lines and do a "Move Object", and everything would move and copy (without "add existing lines"). But most times, I can't select anything - even lines, until I add them to a sketch.
Any hints are appreciated.

I have been using NX for a long time now and I have run into this problem time after time. It makes me so mad. Usually if I need to move a text I will just start a new drawing. Other times I will screen shot the drawing and import to microsoft paint and cut and pasta to make it look good then re up load into NX as an imported image. All of this depends on how much time I have that day. Now a days I dont have time to move a text as I just received a bundle of joy (I am a proud grampa). Does Siemens not realize that we have lives too? I wish it was easier but such is the life of an engeneer. Anyways I hope this helps.
