Can't do anything about the Text colors at this point.
The automuck and sit out buttons are tied to the chat box. So you have to move all of that to move any of it. Same thing with the timebank, it's tied to those buttons below it.
What is awkward about the boxes?
Jim, yes there are a couple of other considerations when moving the boxes around as I discovered. 5.0 was straight-forward. 6.0 takes a little more digging to understand what these developers are doing and then a little more time to recover from banging my head on the desk when they didn't implement it across all objects.
