You are right at the point where the instructions say to copy an object, perhaps it is a positioned container.  You aren't quite sure how to do that.  Here are some instructions and images to help you do just that.

First, darken in the object you wish to move as shown.

Next, go to Edit and choose copy for that object.

Next, Click on Edit and choose paste for that object.

When you paste the object it goes just under the object you copied.

The object got pasted just under the object you copied.  Left click on this new pasted object with your mouse and move it to where you want it.  In this instance, the pasted object is moved to just below the copied one.  It needs to go below the background, which is the last item under the positioned container.  The frame and background will follow it automatically.

Here is the finished move.  The positioned container and it's two sub-items were moved to below the first positioned container which was copied.

The positioned container shown here can be copied, HOWEVER, the background and frame beneath it will NOT.  The reason for this is that they do not fall under the positioned container.

This positioned container CAN be copied with the background and frame as they fall under the positioned container.

I hope this helps clear up any misunderstandings about copying and pasting objects.
