I created a form with expandable text fields and drop-down menus (it's a performance review form for employees) and need to make some layout changes to it, however when I try to move objects they either don't move at all or snap to another position far from what I was trying to do. The first page is fine (and contains a positioned subform) but none of the others work as they did when I first assembled the form.

All I need to do is move a series of text fields to the right to indent them, and none of them want to go there. I'm able to edit their appearance but that's it.

I am new to Adobe Livecycle (less than a week), and I'm at my end with this program and its counter-intuitive and cumbersome functionality (I've used other Adobe products on a Mac for 15 years as a graphic designer and have never had this sort of trouble). Any help would be appreciated. I urgently need to complete this project, and as of now it looks like I'll be recreating it from scratch.

They are, but when I set them back to positioned, all the text stacks up together. It just makes no sense. I found if I create groups the objects don't move as much, but if I miss the positioning of one object and have to tweak it, and thus switch the subform back to positioned, it all gets jumbled up again.
