    Hi, I'm just learning Unity and I can't figure out why I'm unable to click-and-drag objects. It's been working fine for days, and now suddenly I can only move objects by their widgets. Trying to drag them directly just results in an empty selection box. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, made a new project, restarted, and reset the interface to factory settings and nothing seems to help.

    Does anyone have any idea what to do about this? I upgraded to 4.3 today if that's relevant...

    Click and drag objects? You mean select and move their position? Or dragging prefabs into your scene from the project window?

    I was just having the same issue and pulling my hair out. Turns out I had my Sprite renderer collapsed. In the inspector window, make sure the components are expanded. Im my case it was the sprite renderer, but I'm not sure what you're working on.

    Cheers!

    I had the same issue as well… would have never thought to see if the sprite renderer being collapsed was the culprit, crazy.
