    Default Nudge tool

    Summary: Create a nudge tool that can be used to move things in small increments with the arrow keys.

    Description: Create a nudge tool that can be used to move things in small increments with the arrow keys. This will be helpful with things like annotative text, revision bubbles, viewports, sheet titles etc that don't require numeric precision for placement.

    1+ ... Although, I'd like to see this added to vanilla AutoCAD, and thus all of the verticals that derive from it.

    I can see a plug-in that allows user to define (per-Profile) a Model and Paper space 'nudge' value, where a pseudo-named NUDGE CommandMethod would then filter for Arrow UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT KeyDown events, and 'nudge' the Model, Layout, or Model through activated (and unlocked) Viewport accordingly. Any other key (or perhaps only Enter/Right Mouse Click & Escape?) would exit the Command.

    Not sure that I have the time to do this right now, having just declined a paying consulting job, but a moderate complexity app once I, or someone smarter than I makes the time... Just posting this here for notes to refer back to later.

    Cheers

    This has been in AutoCAD and its verticals since the 2012 release. Not that I have ever used it for project work. Activate it by CTRL+[arrow key]. As noted in the Help:
    Nudge objects with Snap mode turned off: Objects move two pixels at a time; movement is relative and orthogonal to the screen, regardless of the view direction or the UCS orientation.
    Nudge objects with Snap mode turned on: Objects are moved in increments specified by the current snap spacing; movement is orthogonal to the X and Y axes of the current UCS and relative to the view direction.

    I actually just stumbled upon this myself, and came back to post... Thanks for saving me the time.

    Still not as complete (IMO), as what I posit, but it has all the ground work in place... I'll try to remember to request it in 2016 Alpha/Beta.

    I haven't ever quite figured out how to make that work ... but I wonder if the wish list threads might be different ... kinda like CWC posts.
