values of input field should not get rounded automatically when using arrow keys

Recommended Posts



strickt speaking I have declare the current behavior of the input fields when using arrow keys (shift+arrow key) as buggy in the following 2 situations:


1.) if a value is "1,5px" and you press e.g. "arrow up" to step 1px up

status quo: result is: 2px 

expected: 2,5px


So the "1,5px" will be rounded to 2px instead of adding 1px

But in the next usage of "arrow up" 1px will be added


2.) if a value is e.g. "12px" and you press "shift+arrow up" to add 10px

status quo: 20px

expected: 22px


So the "12px" will be "rounded to 20px" (add 8px instead of 10px)

But in the next usage of "shift+arrow up" 10px will be added


The current problem I see here is, that there is 2 different actions with the same keyboard action. Which is in general not a problem but the AD does not give any feedback nor it gives me the option to prevent that first action, which I do not want to trigger.   



At least I would recommend to have this as an option in the preferences, so that every user can decide if the "first rounding action" is welcome or not.
