AnyLogic supports two ways of moving presentation shapes. First, you can specify shape's coordinates in pixels in the shape's properties view. And also there is more visual way of moving shapes in the graphical editor using the mouse.
As a rule, when you draw your presentation, it is more
convenient to position shapes directly in the editor. While shape
properties are commonly used when you need to define how shape should
move during the model simulation – the behavior
defined using the corresponding dynamic properties of the shape.
When moving presentation shapes, you can use the Ctrl, Alt and Shift modifier keys to perform additional actions. Modifier keys can work in combination, e.g., Ctrl+Alt+drag creates a copy of the element while allowing to move it with snapping to grid temporarily disabled.
