I have an incomplete Layout in a limited version of EAGLE. I already use 
up all of the available space, so moving the Board boudaries is not an 
Due to a misjudgement of space I need to move a selectable group of 
carefully aligned parts (mount holes for a display, buttons, display).
Is there a way to tell Eagle to move the entire group, lets say 10mm to 
the left? I dont want them to move up or down, as could accidentally 
happen when I use my mouse. I have seen something like this in other CAD 
Software, where you could use the arrow-keys and type in the distance.

Simply GROUP your components, then set the grid to 10mm, finally MOVE 
the group. Since the grid is set to 10mm, its fairly easy.

You can also use the command line for this.

GROUP the components using the mouse, then type in the command line

move (> 0 0)

This will select the group in the origin 0 0

(10 0)

This will drop the group at the coordinates 10 0

This way you can move a group easy and precicely by any offset.
