Hi. I really find useful if you can configure two nudge distance modifiers in Preferences (like in Corel Draw).
For example:

Nudge Distance (normal): 1 mm
Nudge Distance (Shift): 10 mm
Nudge Distance (Ctrl): 0.1 mm

This is exactly how it works with the mouse wheel, and up/down key.

Hi Pšenda. The nudge is the ability to move objects by selecting they and using the cursor keys to change they position (optionally plus SHIFT key, to modify the relative distance the object is moved).

I attach an image of the section where you can configure these distances (normal and modified with SHIFT). I really would appreciate if one more modifier can be defined in preferences (with CTRL key).

 

Thanks.

That would be handy. Also, I seem to have a single decimal place limit on nudge distances, so I can't set a 0.25 mm nudge. Please at least 2 decimal places on this for mm! - preferably four!

No problem. In the Preferences (User Interface Options) you can set up to 6 decimal places for each unit.

InDesign has one logical and very useful feature. When you click on up/down arrow next to a value field, it is rounded to the nearest whole number and the next clicks are in steps of +1/-1. No decimals after that.
