What I'm saying is that you can do this. Create a NEW shelf, and put it
in the lower right hand corner and it will stay there. What it seems you
have done is created a shelf in the left hand corner and dragged items
in the same shelf across to the right in the hope that they would always
line up with the right hand edge. This is the whole point of having
multiple shelves, to provide the apparent "dynamic" behaviour.

Multiple shelves are the key here.

No problems.
