Q - question

When moving one entity, the adjacent entity moves too.

A - answer When you e.g. move a block placed on a line, the line may move along with the block -- most probably there is a constraint between these two entities (objects). This constraint may have been created manually or rather automatically. Too many constraints may slow down your drawing. The ar indicated by a "double flag" icon when you hover on an entity.

You can remove the adverse constraint with the command DELCONSTRAINT. If you want to avoid creating automatic constraints on related objects, switch off this behaviour with the variable CONSTRAINTINFER (set to 0), or press the key combination Ctrl+Shift+I (see also the first icon on AutoCAD status bar).
