Dear Foldit team,

I am writing to you to report a bug in the campaign offline, "Movin along". Although I can click the protein alpha coil to get the purple arrows, I am unable to directly move the alpha coil vertically. The one movement that I could make is to make it to the left/right and upwards/downwards with the T-shaped centre that can't be shifted.

I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

Hi Thai Leong Lai,

Thank you for your inquiry. You'll need to use the right mouse button to right click and drag the purple cross in order to move the protein. I have verified that the puzzle is working as intended. If you are still stuck, please check out our guides here:
