• Click the control to select it. To select several controls at once, press and hold down the
Shift key while clicking each control. Handles appear around all selected controls.
• To move a single selected control, drag the control’s move handle, which is the handle in
the upper-left corner, to its new position.
• To move a group of selected controls, point to any selected control until the pointer
changes to a move pointer, and then drag the group of selected controls to its new
position.
• To move selected controls in small increments, press the appropriate arrow key.
• To move selected controls to the next nearest grid dot, hold down the Ctrl key and press
the appropriate arrow key.
Based on Lucia’s design for the custom form, you must select the ContractType bound
control and move it up and to the right in the Detail section. The ContractType bound
control consists of a field-value text box, labeled ContractType, and an attached label,
labeled Contract Type, to its left.
To select the ContractType bound control:
1. If necessary, click the ContractType text box to select it. Move handles, which are
the larger handles, appear on the upper-left corners of the selected text box con-
trol and its attached label. Sizing handles also appear, but only on the text box.
See Figure 6-22.

You can move a text box and its attached label together. To move them, place the
pointer anywhere on the border of the text box, but not on a move handle or a sizing
handle. When the pointer changes to a shape, you can drag the text box and its
attached label to the new location. As you move a control, an outline of the control
moves on the rulers to indicate the current position of the control as you drag it. To move
a group of selected controls, point to any selected control until the pointer changes to a
shape, and then drag the group of selected controls to its new position. You can
move controls with more precision when you use the arrow keys instead of the mouse.
To move selected controls in small increments, press the appropriate arrow key. To move
selected controls to the next nearest grid dot, hold down the Ctrl key and press the
appropriate arrow key.
