The Property Panel contains information about essential properties of an object:

Object’s Position

The X and Y fields represent a position of an object according to the top-left corner of the canvas.

You can change them by typing inside the text fields.

To keep the proportions between width and height select the Keep Ratio icon in between these fields.
