I have a lot of objects that I need to move. the default option is "fixed", so I need to change it each time I add an object.

can I change its default?

In the main menu, select Options->Advanced.

A panel opens. Select the 4th icon on top (the tooltip when you hover the pointer on it is Preferences - Defaults).

You will see list of objects. Select the object(s) of which you want to change the default options, modify them as you need, then close the panel.

In the main menu again, select Options->Save settings to save your settings as default for your next GeoGebra files.

Only in version 5 Classic. Version 6 doesn't allow you to set defaults.
