TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Many thanks to Dick and Gerd for responding to my question; however, I had
already tried the method they suggested, using the object selection tool,
and it didn't work; hence my post. Now that Lynn has told us about the
security feature, I will investigate further to see if that's why I'm unable
to lasso and move the flowchart. I appreciate everyone's help.

Subject: AW: Moving graphics in PDF files
Allyson Smith wants to "move a flowchart graphic within a .pdf document
using Acrobat 4.0.".
Allyson, it' simple:
click on the last button in the tools palette (on the left margin) and keep
the mouse key pressed until a 2nd hidden button pops up. It's the "TouchUp
Object Tool". Drag the mouse over it (key still pressed), release, and -
voila - you can drag your graphic around at will.
BTW: This (and all the other badly marketed Acrobat features) is documented
in the online Acrobat Guide...
