Press ALT and click within the selection, then drag it where you want.
This will move only the selection (the dashed borders), not the content.
If you are under Linux or *BSD, your window manager may catch the
ALT-drag to move the window. In that case, most window manager allow to
use CRTL-ALT instead to move the selection.
