Nudging Components

Drag-and-drop allows you to move components around on your design in a very natural way. However, it can be difficult and time consuming to position component precisely using drag-and-drop alone. To achieve pixel-accurate positioning, you can nudge components in any direction using the keyboard.

To nudge components:

  1. Select the components on the canvas.
  2. Press the Up, Down, Left or Right arrow key to nudge the selected components in that direction.

By default, nudging moves components by 1 pixel. You can move by large amounts by holding a modifier key while nudging:

  • Move by 5 pixels at a time by holding the Control (or Command) key.
  • Move by 10 pixels at a time by holding the Shift key.
