If you've grouped some controls, to move the group (as opposed to 
individual controls) click on the button in the tool bar above the main 
window that says "Select grouped".  Presumably, it was dark and then 
turns grey.  Then clicking on any control in the group will select the 
whole group and you should be able to move the controls together.
