What to try when drag & drop isnt working in the form designer

Today I was going a little nutty. I was in the middle of a very productive swing customizing until my recent loss of drag & drop got the better of me. Frustrated, I turned to the ever helpful community and found just what I was looking for. I wanted to report in the event that anyone is struggling with this issue.
