    You should move the highlighted box around by touching the box (for example, at the red spot) and dragging it over the spot. If you touch and drag the white shapes at the corners (green circled), you can shrink or enlarge the highlighted box. Resize and drag until the spot best fills the middle square of the highlighted box. It should look like this:
