Remove exact measurements from selection when moving

Recommended Posts


I'm nudging small objects with my keyboard up, left down etc and my selection box keeps displaying the exact positions/pixels (or is it the measurements of the object?) I'm not sure what all the numbers are around my selections but they're getting in the way as I can't see what I'm doing! I don't know how to turn it off, or how I even turned it on!!

Any help appreciated, thanks.

I figured it out by searching another forum

If anyone else finds the measurement guides annoying whilst nudging with the keyboard for close-up work, you can hold down the space bar to hide the guides. If someone knows a permanent way to turn off the automatic guides when nudging, let me know!
