access 2007 report insert vertical space

Trying to find how to insert blank vertical space on an Access 2007 report so I can add a control between two existing controls without having to grab everything below it and drag it all down.  I know this has to be easy but I can't find how to do it.  Thanks in advance for any help.  I tried just inserting the control to see if it would move everything below down, but it did not.

Access developers have been grabbing everything below and dragging it down for decades (2 decades, anyway). You can click and drag a selection area over the controls below to select them all. Use Ctrl-Click to select/unselect an item into/from your multiple selection. I find it easiest to have a control that bumps up against the left form border when dragging as that makes it easier to place the dragged items horizontally.

That's how it is.  After selecting the controls to move down as a block, you can use Ctrl-down arrow to move the block down carefully.
