Feature Request: Arrow keys to move objects


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature Request: Arrow keys to move objects

Would like an option to be able to move objects around using the arrow keys. Left/right to move X axis, up/down to move Y axis, and something like shift+up/down for Z axis.


Very useful for fine tune adjustments of lining up parts, especially when zoomed in. Currently quite annoying to either have to zoom out, find the drag arrows, and inaccurately drag the mouse around, or repeatedly type in values manually.


Surprised it's not that by default to be honest, seems way more useful than camera controls.

    I second this. This would be an incredibly useful feature when placing and lining up multiple, dozens of parts. Especially washers for nuts and bolts. Thanks for all you guys do and for making the world a better place. <3

    Better stated. More from the heart.
