Description cobbr2 2003-01-11 00:39:14 UTC
I've observed, and it is apparently documented behavior, that using the arrow
keys to nudge an object always nudges it one mm, regardless of my grid settings,
measurement units, or the scale of the drawing.  One of my favorite (dead)
drawing tools, ClarisDraw, did this much better: with snap grid on, nudge moved
one grid point.  With it off (or with the shift key pressed), it moves one
pixel, regardless of the viewing scale.

Visio does something similar.

As an alternative, the nudge distance could be specifiable when setting the
measurement units.  I.e., if I set up for "inch", I should be able to set my
nudges to .0625 or 1/16".  A millimeter is always wrong in imperial units.

I've upgraded consistently, through all the 2.x and 3.x releases. Nudge still doesn't respect my document 
properties or snap settings.

I'm doing quite a bit of work where I'm overlaying images of electronic
equipment, machine parts etc., with line graphics of one sort or another.  Even
at maximum magnification I often can't get them to line up as well as I would
like (not professional looking).

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
