Planes aren't moving with body...

I have a weldment, I insert a previously modeled part using insert/part. When I use the "Move-Body" command, the planes I brought in with the part don't move with the part. They stay where I originally inserted the part before I moved it. Regardless of how many times i move the body the planes never move.


Now I'm suddenly unable to use the planes brought in with the part as entities to locate the body. I have used this method hundreds of times without a single problem. Yeah, the planes have never moved with the body, but that has never prevented me from locating the body using those planes.  Keeps telling me I "must select  an entity from the moving body".....THE PLANE IS AN ENTITY OF THE MOVING BODY!!!!   lol


So my questions are:

1: why don't the planes move with the body when using the "move body" command?

2: why cant I locate the body using the planes brought in with the inserted part?



Flustered, Confused and beaten


any ideas?


Thanks in advance
