After beta1 in the imagej devel list Justin Senseney reported:

When you create an ROI, only its initial point’s location is fixed, you can change that initial point to be the top-left, top-right, bottom-left, or bottom-right point. However when you adjust the size of a fixed-shape ROI (like circle and square), the diagonally opposite point is fixed in orientation (ex. If you created

and wanted to modify the location of the bottom-right point, you could go no farther than: . What the user usually wants to do is turn that bottom-right point into a bottom-left point to create: . While this is implemented in IJ1, I’m not sure that implementation is ideal, I think you’ll see what I mean when you try it in IJ1.

Further notes from Justin:

If I move my previously created ROI to the edge of the image window, it becomes stuck, as in: . I would have expected to be able to move the ROI outside of the image window (which I think is a really cool new feature of IJ2), but at the very least I wanted to just drag my ROI back. The ROI has become frozen in this position and I must re-click if I want to move it (this only happens when no previously-off the viewport ROIs have been created).
