Hi Pat,

If I understand your request correctly here are some keywords:
offset, align, misalignement, georectification

and some links

I would recommend using the "fix alignment" tool to move the imagery
to match the existing data and then trace new data as needed.
It is important to keep the new data consistent with the existing data
in the neighbourhood.
It is not practical to use iD editor to batch move several objects.
