'Nudging' hotkey

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


New to Vectorworks still and just upgraded to V2020... in V2018 I could use my keyboard arrows to 'nudge' a selected object very slightly to the left/up etc with each click... now with V2020 my keyboard arrows jump my view left/right etc instead of the object.  Any help with how to get this hotkey feature back to move objects?  Thank you!

Vectorworks Preferences -> Edit -> Arrow Keys -> Nudge Objects -> set the key(s) you want to use

Another little tip. Just below the nudge control is another handy shortcut to move objects either the grid distance or a set distance. I have my grid set to 5mm so when I hit Shift+Ctrl+Arrow it "nudges" them 5mm. I use this all the time.
