Move selection x pixels up/down/left/right

Recommended Posts

If it's a relatively small distance, just use the Move Selected Pixels tool (selection w/ its contents) or the Move Selection tool (just the selection) and then press the arrow keys to nudge it around. Hold Ctrl to move by 10 pixels at a time.

It's not a big deal but sometimes I need to be precise with my drawings, e.g. move selection exactly 256 pixels to the bottom or rotate exactly 36 degrees clockwise. Guidelines aren't supported yet so what I do now is look at the current coordinates, use a calculator to calculate the new ones, move with the move tool and nudge with the arrow keys when I'm close. An option in the edit menu would be nice.
