Moving Polygons

I sometimes have polygons/tracks that are accurate to shape and size, but the individual vertices are not accurately located. That is, the polygon as a whole would be accurately placed on the map if each vertex were shifted by the same vertical and horizontal distances.
Is there a method to shift or drag an entire polygon? In other words, can all the vertices in a polygon be moved simultaneously?

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

    Hi Michael,
    Unfortunately you cannot drag the whole polygon once it is created. Your best bet is to either drag the individual vertices, or redraw the shape.
