You ever notice how after you move an object 30 or so meters at once, you can't move it any further and need to release it and then start moving it again? Well, I've found out how to disable that behavior! Here's how to do it:
1) Go to the Advanced menu. If you don't have it, press CTRL-ALT-D (CMD-ALT-D on Mac, CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-D on Linux) and it should pop up to the right of the Help menu.
2) Select the Debug Settings option from the advanced menu
3) type "LimitDragDistance" into the Debug Settings window
4) Set it to FALSE, and close the window
Now, you should be able to move objects without having to start and stop frequently.
