Feat. Req.s - Lock axis when using move tool and drag layers


Recommended Posts

Please don't read these as if they were demands, they're merely polite suggestions with no expectations.

Lock Axis on "move selection/pixels"

When you only want the selection moved across the x-axis, it would be helpful if you could simply hold ctrl and drag with the mouse. This also applies to moving the selection vertically (hold shift and drag). I know you can do this with the keyboard arrows, but it's much too slow on large images.

Dragging Layers

I saw a four-year-old post regarding dragging layers, so I think it would proper to reiterate it. It would be very helpful when you're dealing with 20+ layers.

Merge "move selection/pixels" history

When you move a selection with the arrows (on one axis), it should not be recorded in the history window until the selection has stopped moving. Currently, the history gets polluted with "move selection/pixels" whenever you hold down the arrow keys to move a selection. (You can click+hold the selection before using the arrow keys to prevent this, so I'm not bothered whatsoever if this is implemented or not. However, I think new users who don't know this trick would appreciate the change.)

Brad, please accept my apologies for posting in your feature request thread.

I'm not really a new user but I do not know this trick. Worse, I don't get it. Please elaborate.
