Symbols won't move and appear to be locked in place


I have attached a chart that I created in Milestones Professional.   This is a chart that is used for a lot of briefings for the government.  Unfortunately my engineer and I opened it to make some changes and if you try a lot of the bars are locked and I cannot change the links or delete.



The schedule uses a lot of baseline symbols.  The baseline symbols appear to be locked.  When locked, baseline symbols can not be moved.  Fortunately, it's easy to unlock the baseline.

    1. On the View menu, choose Lock Baseline so that it is unchecked.
    2. If your schedule does not display a baseline and you don't want to use this feature of Milestones, you can take the additional step of converting your baseline symbols to normal symbols.  Double-click the symbols in your toolbox to make this change.  If the symbol is set to baseline, just change it to normal  .
