Can't seem to select and move tRestrict Polygons

Hi there,  I have imported an old Eagle job made by someone else.  It has use of tRestrict layer with 3 polygon shapes currently.  I am attempting top move a bunch of things in the design including these restrict layers.  I can't seem to find a way to select them to even delete are de do them.  They seem to be stuck.  I need to find a way to either remove and add back these shapes or select and drag and drop to relocate them.    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @FunWithFusion 

I hope you are doing well!

It seems that the tRestrict polygon is in the library.

So if you want to delete it, you need to change it from the library.

Please have a try, thanks!

Well I don't want to delete it I want to relocate it.  I am moving parts around on the board.  I don't see how this can help since I need it. Are you suggesting deleting it from the lib then creating a new lib polygon?  None of this seems to make sense as it is not a part. I never made it in the lib. I imported it from eagle where it was drawn in the layer as a polygon.  So I don't understand how this can work.  


What would it be called and what lib would it be in since it is a polygon drawn on a layer?  I can not find out the properties because the primary issue here is I can not select it.

I think I understand now.  The restrict layers are drawn into the part package in the lib not in the layout so the restrict purposefully moves with the part and can't be wrong.  


Thanks, Much appreciated!
