Components: moving, resizing, selecting, dragging
Cancel dragging a component
You're designing a form and you started moving a component by dragging it. Suddenly you realize that you selected the wrong component (or even worse, several components at once). But if you find this error early enough, all is not lost...
Moving a component to an exact spot
Select the component. Press and hold the CONTROL key, then use the cursor keys to move the component in 1 dot increments.
Resizing a component precisely
Select the component. Press and hold the SHIFT key, then use the cursor keys to resize the component in 1 dot increments.
Selecting a component's parent
When designing forms, you often use panels as "containers" to hold other components. But later on, it's sometimes confusing to find out who is the parent of a component... Is it the form that holds a certain edit-box or button, or is there a panel that is "holding" these components?
