LibreOffice is supposed to move the math formula.

For a StarMath (sm) OLE object on the Impress canvas, the object can be single click selected, and then with cursor anywhere in the object body (cursor changes to the move cross) and dragged to new position on canvas.

Also, the OLE formula can be double click selected for edit (the Math module will launch showing the input box and elements sidebar) and the OLE formula object can be selected and dragged. 

Note: in the OLE launched Math view of the canvas a click drag selection has to be more precise and pointing onto the object border. But then the same move cross will show when on target.

I also do not reproduce. That makes three of us.
1. Please check whether you attached the correct file. 
2. And write EXACT steps to reproduce. 
3. And please test on some other computer. 
4. Also, try to reset user profile. 
Once done, set to Unconfirmed again.

Hello. I can't reproduce this bug in release on a Windows 10 1803. Maybe my former computer was not optimal for the LibreOffice release.
