MapInfo Professional: Unable to select and move labels

Issue

After moving several labels in a layer, you are then unable to select and move other labels.

This happens after importing an excel spreadsheet in MapInfo Pro and then using the Table>Create Points option.

This happens in MapInfo Pro 15.

Resolution

UPDATED: March 29, 2017


There are two possible workarounds for this issue;
  1. When you get into a state where you can't select a particular label, do a Control-D to force a redraw. This fixes the problem for a while. You can then pick the label that you wasn't able to pick previously and move it. 
  2. There may be an issue with the table so you can exported the table to MIF/MID, then re-imported the MIF/MID into a new table.
