    select the parts of the sketch you want to move, then use "transform" it will be in the drop down with patterns

    that should give you a manipulator tool that will let you drag/rotate sketch entities. It will also override/break any constraints that are holding your sketch entities in place.

    example the highlighted sketch is fully constrained, but if I were to move the arrow on the manipulator, the sketch will still move.
