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 :-)

  • 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? May 9, 2012 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. Jun 7, 2012 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.

On the Nexus 7 it is similarly hidden, you select

  1. The gear
  2. Gesture settings
  3. Scroll to bottom <--
  4. Change entry location
  5. Select from (left,right,hidden)
  6. Enjoy :-)
