Before the Sonar changes, I could move the gesture button by long-pressing it and dragging it to a different corner. Now long pressing brings up a menu to use a gesture or use Sonar.

How can I move the gesture button to a different corner?

I had looked around the settings menus for what felt like hours before I found those button's settings (see Sachin Shekhar's answer below). Glad to hear I wasn't the only one having trouble :-) – Mr. Buster Apr 5 '12 at 17:27
Sadly, the current version of Dolphin HD (V8) no longer offers the option to move it. Text is generally left-justified. Why isn't the button default to possibly hide content on the right? – Thomas G. Mayfield May 9 '12 at 16:56
And then they brought it back. While I appreciate being able to move it again, I sure would like if they just stopped messing with it. – Thomas G. Mayfield Jun 7 '12 at 19:15

Tap the gesture button to bring gesture drawing screen. On this screen, you can find a Gear icon in bottom-right corner. Tap it and you'll find 1st option on next screen for changing position.
