Move Tool Container by Clicking Anywhere, not Just in the Header

When I'm organizing my workflow, sometimes I want to move a whole tool container on the canvas. Currently, the only way to do this is to first find the header then select and drag this. When the ends of the container is off screen, it can be hard to know how much I wanted to move my container to get it where I wanted relative to the other tools around it. I feel like it would be nice to be able to select anywhere on the tool container and drag it around (possibly holding right click and dragging so that current tool selection capabilities aren't hindered).



In the (simplified) images below, you'll see that I want my tool container to vertically align just above the browse tool:




I can't currently see the top of the tool container to move it, though, so I must first navigate to that part of the workflow to select the header.

I agree different ways to grab it would be useful. A solution could be implemented is like set a button + the mouse like, ctrl+left click and hold to grab the conteiner from anywhere instead of just from the headers.

This would be great.
