Not for VID (the standard GUI system built-in). The layout system is
very simple, in that the LAYOUT function performs a distribution of
the faces that are parsed in the dialect. That means, it places them
inside an area and organises them in a face object tree, depending on
use of panels, buttons, fields, etc. After that, VID can't do much
with it, i.e. it's static, can't be resized or moved without poking
the face objects directly, which you've probably already been doing.
There are some other tricks, like storing a position for later use,
that you can use during layout:
view layout [
button "my button" here: guide
button "on the box"
I'm not sure if that's useful.
