Dear Elaine,

     thanks a lot! That was it! Just one more: what means Ctrl-1, 
Ctrl-2, and Ctrl-3 in the Preferences > Mouse settings? I simply used 
Ctrl-1+left mouse button, but how to access/program the other Ctrls?

bw Dieter

For that, you need to assign a mouse button to that function using the preferences.  menu: Favorites… Preferences, change to category Mouse, and then assign button 1,2,3 alone or in combination with Ctrl to the label-dragging function — see:
