Which is the point of our complaint. Gnome 3 developers did not code a generic way to do the most trivial of things for a GUI - rearrange elements on the screen. Duh!
Instead, for someone to move an icon by one position on the grid, you have to create or download code. But, if you want to move it by two, you may be out of luck. Totally and utterly ridiculous, of course.
