inserted parts in assembly don't move

I insert parts in an assembly, new parts from content center or from a library, without projected edjes, they are free to move until i impose the first constraint, the axis to axis alignment of round parts, then i cannot move them anymore in order to continue constraining them

I've seen this behaviour a couple of times in our office - usually it's because the assembly is "sick" somewhere. Either a constraint that's conflicting, or something else un-resolved. 

 

Exact same behaviour - insert any part ... it's free to move ... add 1 contraint and the part "locks-up".

 

Check for the "red-plus-I'm-sick-sign" up top - and see if anything is wrong.

Karol-Or,

 

I took a look at your assembly and it seems to be missing some files.

I tested the two parts in a different assembly that I expect that you want to rotate.

 

You might want to try doing a pack and go w/o libraries and zipping that up and I can take a look at it.

 

Thank you.

I opened the assembly file that i sent to you and it doesn't need more files.

I copied the files to a different folder and opened the assembly from there now, and the handle is free to move, as i expected.

Why, in the first place, was it locked, and now free to move, according to the constraints?
