Dragging with the mouse is the quickest way to move objects in your drawing. You can move an object interactively by dragging it anywhere in your drawing and releasing the mouse button at the desired location. If you require more precision, you can place objects at specific ruler coordinates. You can also move objects by a specific distance, and move copies of objects.
CorelDRAW also lets you nudge objects in increments using the keyboard. You can set the nudge distance to any value you want.
By default, when you move or position an object, the object moves according to its center anchor point. Consequently, the center of the object moves to specific ruler coordinates. However, you can assign a new anchor point. The anchor points correspond to the object's selection handles. You can also reset the anchor point to its original position.
