Is there way of finely adjusting the 'nudging' distance using the cursor keys? I imagine using a second key to divide the default distance by 10.

Or could the nudge be made variable.  Currently on my 27" screen a nudge at a 5000% zoom moves nearly a half inch on the screen.  At a 50,000% zoom results in a move of 4.5 inches.  Could it always move say 1 pixel of actual screen size?  The nearly infinite zoom is one of the main selling points of AD so there should be a way to make such zooms practical.

+1 for @Gear maker's last comment. There should be a Move tool key modifier/s for a 1 pixel nudge, no matter what zoom depth you are in.

The nudge distance should be either

· freely adjustable (distance and unit) or

· one press of an arrow key should nudge the object 1 px/mm/ft – whatever the document unit is. (Holding down shift would of course move it 10 of whatever the unit is.)

DrProctor, what I meant was to move it 1 px of the screen, regardless of the zoom.  If I'm backed out with inches as a unit, I may be showing 10 inches on the screen so I wouldn't want a nudge to be 1/10 of the screen or 2.7".
