No MOC Grip for objects

May be covered already, but I searched and didn't find anything so sorry if
this is old. After an arc has been converted to a Parcel object segment and
now want to adjust the arc's mid point, but no grip to select. We have a
situation where the street needs to be widened and short of erasing the arc
and rebuilding can't figure it out.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Ed,

Once you convert it to a parcel, it can't be edited. To get it back to
an editable state, you have to explode it - not good, in my opinion.
That takes away the major functionality (the "dynamicness") of parcels.

Jason & Ed:

Not sure if this helps but I use this work-a-round. If the right of way is
consistent, I will off set it, use the Parcel command to define it, then use
the Parcel entity delete key to remove the parts that I don't want. This
includes making a new radius by using the fillet command with the new RW
lines before I "Parcelize" it.
