    Hello All,

    We thank you for your patience all this while.

    Addressing this problem has been tricky for us given the random nature of the issue.
    Determined to resolve the issue, we had launched our investigation into the matter to identify the root cause and fix it.

    Many of you must have received email from us seeking more details about the issue.

    We have concluded our investigation and came up with the below mentioned finding:

    It was found that, most of the times, users were trying to drag an empty polygon which was leading the confusion because the legacy behaviour of InDesign allows dragging of polygon only from its edges or the centre most point.
    If the user tries to drag it from any other position, the object cannot be moved.

    We have tried to improve the user experience in this regard. You can try the same in InDesign’s latest…

    I had this come up, and while I don't know if this will fix it for everyone, I did a bunch of testing and it worked for my specific case.

    The problem happened when I had Photoshop AND InDesign AND Windows Explorer open. In Photoshop I dragged a photo from Windows Explorer into the Photoshop canvas to create a new layer. Then I dragged some objects from InDesign to Photoshop to make another layer. This broke everything.

    Dragging not only stopped working for InDesign, but ALSO for Windows Explorer. Going into task manager to restart windows explorer didn't work. I literally couldn't drag Windows files from a Windows Explorer window to anywhere, which I have never seen in my life.

    Anyways, closing InDesign and then closing Photoshop fixed things immediately, and I could drag in InDesign and drag in Windows Explorer again. It seems like the drag feature is tied into the actual operating system's drag?
