A selected view can be moved by clicking and dragging it using mouse. If OPTION key is selected, a copy is moved instead.

Views are automatically snapped to other view control points. To disable snapping, hold CMD key while moving layers.

A selected layer can also be moved using ARROW keys. This will move layer 1px at your desired direction. By holding SHIFT key, 10px will be moved instead.
