Moving text annotations in Xournal

Yes, it is possible to move text annotations in Xournal. Follow the following steps:

  1. Click in the toolbar on the "Select Region" or "Select Rectangle" button.
  2. Click on the annotation in the document.
  3. Now you can drag the annotation to a different location.

I succeed to move text like this:

After writing text in any location in the document:

  • I went to the upper toolbar and choose the "Select rectangle" button (instead of the "Text" button). Shortcut: Ctrl + R.
  • Now, in this state, I dragged the text to any other location in the page.

After that, you can go back again to "Text" mode and edit the text as before (shortcut Ctrl + T).

  • I am using Ubuntu 12.04, and currently it installs Xournal 0.4.5 by default.
