When I bought this camera I was a bit worried that I could not buy a Canonon lens-hood for it. It seems that I need not have worried :-)

Is there a way of preventing the focus frame from moving around on the screen?

I am not sure what you mean.

I have my G5X set to single point focus - which is always in the middle of the screen. So, my method is to place that on the object I wish to be sharp, half-press the firing button, re-frame the image and then complete the shot with full button pressure.

This image illustrates one of my single-pout focus shots. The tip of the red bar is in perfect focus and was in the middle of the screen inside the little focusing box before re-framing the shot.

Thank you for your help. I realized what was happening to me. I was using the viewfinder but also had the LCD screen facing me and when I would put my eye to the viewfinder my nose would touch the LCD screen and redirect the frame some where else. I simply reversed the screen facing into the camera body.

LOL! I always use LCD or viewfinder.

Well done. A nicely framed shot.
