When building Canvas sections once you select a control on the canvas you can use the keyboard cursor keys to move it (left, right, up, down).

F4 edits the "common" delegate for that item (e.g. click for a pushbutton).

F5 slides in the attributes dialog.

You can multi select controls using shift+click and then use the cursor keys to move them as a group.

Pressing shift with the cursor keys adjusts the width or height of the selected controls.

Useful.

However, I miss the ability to move some selected controls (i.e. more than one) with the mouse.

Also F4 works only the first time on a field (unless the underlying program is closed).

No, its just that the field does not have focus. Click it again and all is ok.
