Some mouse / key enhancements?

#1 Post by xfer » 11 Jun 2020, 13:54

It would be helpful (and probably not too difficult to implement) to have some traditional mouse / key behaviors like these:

When nudging a symbol (Schematics) or component (PCB Layout) with a cursor key, pressing a Shift or Ctrl key will increment the movement by a greater distance.
When dragging a symbol or component with the mouse, holding a Shift or Ctrl key will constrain the movement to orthogonal movement only.

Those are standard and familiar actions in graphics and CAD programs, and would help to streamline positioning.

Thanks for implementing this!
