Is there a way of moving elements at different rates?
Sometimes I need to move an element very slightly and i find I over-move.

When I have text and want to move it in small amounts. When I move it it moves too fast and too much.

This is what keyframing is all about. By setting the right keys at the right time you can create anything you want.

Sometimes you need a lot of keys, sometimes 2 is enough.

Sometimes moving the existing keys (by clicking and dragging them with your mouse) is all that needs to be adjusted.

This example from the installer demonstrates what you can do with keyframes:

If I understand your question right you mean while make the show you want more control in moving elements?

While dragging with your mouse point use:

-Shift to make is faster
-CTRL to have slower steps
-ALT to have the slowest steps

But just typing in the slider box gives you ultimate control.

I'm sorry I didnt make my question more clear.

Am using only 1 key, but placing the obj in the exact position is not always easy. When i move the mouse to fine tune the placement I over-move the position. I do use the cursor keys but that too fine and too slow. Is there a way to adjust the placement position a lot, medium and fine.

Maybe the MOVE KEY buttons is what you are looking for:
