Did you try selecting the palette, then using the Option Inspector? Use Show
option values for notebook. Go to Notebook options, Notebook properties and
set Editable to True. Then move the palette to your desired location and
save it. Palettes are usually not Editable and you have to make them
editable before you make a permanent change to their properties.
