Is there a way to simply click on top of a component in the PCB editor and drag the mouse to move it to a new location in one motion? Currently, I have to first click the component to highlight it and then click it again and drag the mouse to move it. It is a small thing, but the extra step of having to click it twice is extremely frustrating and inefficient when trying to move many components around to different locations on the board. I am a new user trying to convert from DipTrace, where single click and drag is the default.
Hello and welcome @jpa0107
Instead of clicking when over a footprint, just hold the left key down. Releasing left key will stop the move.
Hover mouse over footprint and press “M” key for move.
Hover mouse over footprint and press “G” key then hold left mouse button down to drag.
Much the same for symbols in schematic except first method drags wires also along with third method.
