I have a sub-assembly that is flexible, (constrained properly, not grounded) and when I try to move it in the main assembly, I get the "universal NO" symbol attached to my cursor. There are no constraints preventing the movement in the sub, since I can move it however I want when the sub is opened. Any reason why this would happen? And how can I fix it.
Are there any Positional representations at play here, in the subassembly and/or top level assembly? That's the first thing that came to mind.
The second suggestion would be to go to the Manage tab > Rebuild All button and see what happens when you click it.
Additionaly, you might provide a screen capture of the browser at the subassembly and top level assembly, so others can see what you're seeing, hopefully something will stand out.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

Any bad/sick constraints will stop the item from moving as well.
by "flexible" did you mean you right clicked on that subassembly in the top level sub-assembly and checked "flexible" or just the fact that it "should" be flexible..
