Default Cannot move items horizontally

Hello from Sweden

I'm new to the Reaper software, coming from Logic, and so far I love it.
Howver, I recently made something stupid I guess. And now I can't figure out how to solve it. I cannot move items - audio or midi, at all horizontally. Vertically works.

See this video to understand what I mean:

And just to be clear, snap is not activated, neither is lock-mode.

Thanks!

Sounds like the left/right Item movement might have been accidentally locked.
Lock settings are accessible via the Action List (Options: Show lock settings) or via Right-Click on the Lock-Button in the Main Toolbar.

Thanks a lot Solger. Unfortunately that was no the case with the left/right item movement being locked :-/ But I'm gonna look into the video and see if I can find anything. Please tell me if you have any other ideas regarding this problem..

OK. Then maybe the Mouse Modifier behavior got changed somehow: https://www.reaper.fm/videos.php#H0hSqZ-EVgI

Check Preferences > Mouse Modifier for [Media Item] [left drag]. Might be set to [Move item vertically] instead of [Move Item] > Just Move.

And just in case, also check [Media Item bottom half] [left drag] (which is by default set to [Pass through ....])
