When I want to move a large UV face, and position it sharply, there's the problem that the handle is in the center of the UV island box.

So if I zoom in to have the resolution to position it perfectly, the handle will fall outside the window.

Is there a way to make like in 3DS Max, where you can click on the polygon to drag the entire island, and not only the handle that lies in the center of it?

In the UV window the standard g works so you can grab the selection. The keys r and s also work to rotate and scale the selection. There is also a 2D version of the 3D cursor so you can set the origin of the transform.
