I have an image clipped inside a rectangle shape, how can I move the image inside without affecting the rectangle shape?
Maybe it is a simple operation but I already search for hours without a right answer.

Select the clipped object
Do Object > Clip > Release
Move the image
Select the both the image and the clipping path
Do Object > Clip > Set.
Another method is to use an actual clipping group.
Draw a rectangle over an image
Right click and choose "Create Clip Group"
Double click to enter the group
Double click the image again to just select the image
Move it to the desired position.
Edit → Preferences → Behavior → Clippaths and masks
Put all clipped/masked objects into one group.
This option is a "shortcut" to the manual option below (option 2). When you clip an image again, you can double-click on clip and drag the image. Or go to OBJECTS panel and select the image within clip and drag (as shown in print below).
Another option is to group the image before clip.
After that, go to the Object menu and click Objects…. The selected clip object (in image below
g1566) has an arrow. When click in the arrow, the clipped image will appears. Click in the image object (in image below
image1559) and move/transform the image.
