I think you mean to say unable to move the contriols that i dragged, Well first off its possible to drag them anywhere but that depends on Orientation and gravity of your View, I anycase the graphical editor is not a reliable one to build views you need to use XML instead

There is a book called Begining Android2 try it, it does very well explaining about views
