Hiya, I'm using autocad for mac 2013 and am having problems with the move tool.
I select what I want to move, type "m" and press on the spacebar. I click to move a singular part of my drawing, but it stretches every line it its touching, moving them with it and warping my drawing. To avoid this, I have to copy the part I want to move into an empty space (which also takes a really long time to paste, then delete the original and move the copy
Does anyone have a suggestion of how to fix it so that each part moves independently?

Solved! by maxim_k. See the answer in context.
Yes, FIX - case these problems.
And I have advise for you - don't use Constraints unless you really need them. Keep Infer Constraints OFF.
it doesnt move the entire drawing...it stretches it with what I have selected. Almost as if it's attached like chewing gum. So I try to move one thing and whatever it touches is stretched with it
I think, that this case is all about Constraints again.
Please check them in your drawing.
I turned the constraints off and it has fixed my scaling problem, thank you!
With regards to move however, the problem is still the same. I have attached an example of before and afetr I tried moving one element to show you what I mean
Thank you very very much! ive deleted the constraints from my other drawings and it's now all working as it shoule be.
In the geometric constraints settings, what should I have selected? I only have "fix" selected, could this be the reason for it happening to all my drawings?
