Selection move by arrow keys - settings availability

Recommended Posts

I'm use to move objects with arrow keys. AD has default setting as 1-pixel and 10-pixel move only. But it's not useful when you work on document which is in mm or inch units. 


Most vector apps has possibility to set unit and distance for arrow and shift+arrow. I'm missing it so much in AD. 


It should depend on document units and grid setting - isometric and triangular grid needs to use different "basic move unit".  


Looking forward for such a feauture in next update :)

Hello David_CZ,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

This was already implemented in Affinity Photo and Designer Customer Betas which you can get from here (pinned at the top of their respective sections).

The nudge distances and units can be configured in Affinity Photo/Designer Beta ▸ Preferences, Tools section (on the bottom of the dialog).

If you decide to install the Betas remember to keep the Mac App Store versions installed since they are needed to run them.
