Using the mouse to select drag scope measurement cursors

Using 2016b, I need to measure pulse timings from a standard Simulink scope. It does not seem to be possible to select and drag them using the mouse. The keyboard commands don't seem to work either.

I will answer my own question...
What had not realized is that you need to deselect the pan/zoom button on the toolbar to allow you to select a cursor. I kept selecting the different options for this function using the drop-down arrow, but actually clicking on the icon allows it to be selected or deselected. Seems obvious now!

Thank you for figuring this out. I was quite stuck. Couldn't find anything in the documentation either. I think it would be a good idea for the developers to deselect the pan-zoom when the user first selects the cursor measurement icon (Little ruler is clicked)

Took time to understand for me also: hereby 2 pictures with selected and deselected pan. Only deslected pan will enable you to drag the cursors!
