Moving a point

When the field crew started the Back of Walk line it came, into the drawing, past the Face of Curb. This was due to the C3 command that created an arch on the Curb line. I moved the point and the tin lines and contours followed. Yet the small circle remains and I cannot get it to move. Why did it not move with the point marker? Will the circle have any effect on the drawing?

Attached is a screen shot of the problem. I am using Civil 3D 2014. The data was imported using Field Books. I can recreate the problem as a drawing if required or upload the corrected drawing. I moved the point and trimmed the line. What remained was a small circle that I could not move. If I deleted it, the point was deleted also. What is the circle? Also, there are many places that you can select and list the drawing points: if you right click on a point that is listed you get a sub menu. Example: Open Toolspace, Select the Prospector Tab. Right click on Points. If you select Lock or Unlock nothing happens. If you Highlight a point and select Edit Point this gives you another Panorama. You can make some changes to the point, but, only on the Command Line. Why not the Panorama? (As a side note, I’m still trying to find a light switch, for my house, that has “TRUE or FALSE” on it instead of “ON” or “OFF”.) The problem of the circle and point was solved by: I found the Northing and Easting where I wanted the point and the line to start. (Of course I forgot that this great program defaults, sometimes, to Easting, Northing in some Panoramas’.) I made the changes in the Field Book and the Panorama, imported the changed book and the line and point were in the correct location.
