It bears mentioning that cmd-drag is an exact equivalent to brown-handle-drag (i.e. as you drag, it repositions the object within its container,) but with the advantage that the point of contact for the drag is on the object, not on a halo handle outside the object's bounds.

This allows precise positioning (even at the top of the screen,) with none of the disadvantages that have been mentioned in this thread.

(By cmd-drag I mean use whatever mouse-button and perhaps modifier key gesture you normally use to bring up the halo on a morph, but instead of *cmd-clicking* on the morph, "cmd-drag" it by moving the mouse with that same mouse button down.)
