You can very easily move elements to and from with the same drag and drop concept.

Some elements allow only a specific sets of elements to be nested inside it. For example, Row element would allow only Columns inside it. Slider Group will allow only Slider inside it. If you do not see the green drop-zone when trying to drag and drop an element, it is because, the group element does not support the child element.
