Pointer tool not working

What mode is the stack set to? It sounds as if it is either modeless or 
palette, in which case you can't edit it. This is useful for a Launcher 
stack as it means it is usable even when you are in edit mode, but you 
will have to do something different to edit the Launcher itself.

Try right-clicking to bring up the contextual menu and setting the mode 
to top level so you can edit, then set it back. Alternatively, do all 
your editing via the Application Browser and then save from there.
