Nudge It

Nudging is one of the most powerful features added to CorelDRAW. It allows you to use the arrow keys on the keyboard to "nudge" objects by a defined amount. If you are working with the Shape tool, you can nudge nodes as well. In order to get the most out of the feature, make sure to set up the default nudge values to meet your needs.

Double-click either of the on-screen rulers to get the Tools | Options | Document | Rulers dialog box. At the top are the Nudge settings. By default, Nudge is set to .01 inches. I'm happy with that. The default Super nudge is set to 2. I change mine to 10. Similarly the Micronudge is set to 2 and I also change that to 10. Your preferences may differ. Once you've made your choices, click OK.

Select an object and press one of the arrow keys. It will move by .01 inches (or whatever you selected). Now how Shift and press an arrow key. That is a super nudge and mine will move the object by .1 inches. Try again using Ctrl and an arrow key and you get a micro nudge. For me that is .001 inches. If you are happy with the settings, choose Tools | Save Settings as Default and every new document you create will use those nudge values.
