This started happening in the past couple months.

I'll be working in Pages '09 (4.0.3) and manipulating some sort of object (text box, image, table). I try to switch it from floating to inline or vice versa. It doesn't work.

At the same time, drag and drop on the Dock breaks. I can drag an item between Finder windows or from the Desktop to a folder on the Dock, but not from a Dock folder/stack to a Finder window. I also can't move or remove an icon from the Dock.

Solutions tried:
- deleted dock prefs (fail)
- deleted Pages prefs (fail)
- logging out (success, temporarily)

Other system info:
OS X 10.6.3 (installed via combo updater in safe mode)
Macbook Pro (late 2006)

I'd love to know if there's anything else worth trying! I use Pages for work, so this is a major productivity issue.

Not sure I completely understand everything in your post, but yeah, another thing worth trying is to log in under a different user account. Make one if you need to.
