Access form - move controls

I have an Access form with a subform that I created using the wizard. I am trying to move some controls over to the right
as shown in the image, but it won't let me. How do I achieve this

Is the form in Layout or Edit mode?

If it's the former try changing it to Edit mode.

If you used the Wizard, Access may have put them in a "Layout". You can remove that by opening the form in Design view, then click the Arrange tab in the "Form Design Tools" group, and then click Remove Layout.
Notice the little + at the upper left of the top control.  That indicates that the controls have a layout attached.  Click the plus sign and on the Arrange tab, remove the layout.

Hi. It was in layout mode. I would have liked to allocate points evenly. Is that even possible
