Yes, that was what I was referring to and I'm using a Mac.
I have been able to do as you suggest - which I am sure I tried before but ... it is real picky about where the cursor has to be to see the 4-headed arrow. Once I can get it to show it works.
I also discovered that it will move the text block right if I grab with the double-headed left-right arrow showing - but won't move left. Similarly the up-down arrow will allow downward movement but not upward. I can live with it but something is not quite right.
I also can't find a way to get rid of unwanted text boxes. I can delete all the text but the box hangs around. I tried to select it and delete but any text boxes I add won't select.
