You may not be able to move or resize the objects in your QlikView documents when you opne them with QlikView desktop.
This may happen after an upgrade to a new QlikView release.
The "Allow move/resize" option should be checked by default but the setting may change after an upgrade or the flag may be removed by mistake.
Follow these steps to resolve the problem:
1. Open the QlikView document with QlikView desktop
2. Go to Settings > Document Properties.
3. Choose Layout in the window that opens
4, Select the "Allow move/size" option.
This will let you move and resize the objects in the QlikView document.
It is possible that some of the objects still cannot be moved or resized. If so, verify that the same option is flagged for the object properties (right click on the object>Properties>Layout check "Allow move/size").
