Standard Editing Functions Not Found in Affinity Photo UI Tutorial Overview

Recommended Posts

I'm transitioning from Photoshop PS Touch for IPad to Affinity Photo for iPad. Given that each app has it's own approach to their interface and functionality, there are general photo editing functions necessary for accurate sizing and placement. I've reviewed all the Affinity Photo tutorials relative to basic editing and compositing tasks and have not been able to find:
Is there a 4-directional "nudge" tool to move a selected object a pixel at a time in any direction? I use this ALOT in PS Touch for aligning layers by lowering the opacity for my top layer and then aligning them so that they match exactly.  

 

Thank you.,

Pedro Antonio

Transform studio allows moving on all axis. You can rotate the movement buttons (one for each axis)  or tap the button for pop-up keyboard entry. You can also use move tool to accurately move in any direction with Apple Pencil, snapping down to pixel level.
If you use a keyboard you can nudge using the arrow keys. It is possible to nudge down to single pixel there too.
