Toolspace --> Settings --> Point --> Update Points (allow checked-In-Points to be Modified).  TRUE

I changed the setting and it had no affect.

I still can not move the points

Select a point and look in the properties palette. Does it say True beside the survey point property? Then it's not unlocked.

hi tfboles:


You called it a "Survey Point" in your original post.  You'll need to unlock the point from within the Survey Database first.
