If you are talking about the yellow attachments, just right click on them and choose remove attachment from the menu which pops up. (Note also that edit attachment is not the same as remove and reattach.)

I'm just not understanding, what do I right click on ?

Sorry, I went to bed. You right click on the yellow number itself. (The Toggle Labels has to be on)

If I had a nickle for every time I wished for a "release all restraints (inc. hor and ver centering)" button...I'd have quite a few nickels :)

maybe in 2.0

Select everything, then copy and paste to a new project - that will remove all of the numbered constraints. Centering constraints will remain.

How can I remove the centering restraints on a project?

Same way you turn them on just go to centering and hit the button again and it will take it off.

xchiefl, you talking under the layout tab? This is not my pattern so I'm thinking I can't change it. I did get around by extracting the pattern and then putting it onto a new board, then the restraints were off.

Right click on any restraint and select remove restraint

I have done it with a Pattern that was not mine and it worked fine. You should be able to remove it.
