Moving Tiles by Dragging

You can move a tile or group of tiles once they are selected by simply dragging them. If
connections are showing, they move with the tiles. You can also use the arrow keys to
move selected tiles.

If you move a tile to an edge of the Graphical tab, the tile area scrolls to show its new
position. If the edge of the tile area is reached, it is automatically expanded to
accommodate the tile’s new position.
