I have done some further investigation. I can no longer get the computer (Elements) to lock up, so this no longer seems to be a problem.
However, I do have a couple of other problems other than not being to move the tail on a bubble. See attached image. Note how nice it is to have a movable tail on a balloon. Yes, you are right about PE2. I have found nothing in PE10 that I can't live without using PE2.
