    Default Use the arrow keys to move an object a preset distance in one of the four orthagonal directions.

    Summary: Nudge - move an object a precice distance

    Description: I would like to see a command that would move an object a specific distance in an orthogonal direction by using an arrow key. The amount of movement would be entered by the user. For example, if the Nudge amount is 0.1, then the Rignt Arrow key would move a selected object to the right (relative to the currently selected UCS) that distance. Perhaps a Control-Right Arrow could move it half the distance (0.05) and Shift-Right Arrow could move it twice the distance (0.2).

    I'm calling it "Nudge" but maybe others have used a different term for the same thing.

    There is a NUDGE command - new in 2012 - see here.
    Of course, it may not do exactly what you want.
