Pixel Perfect Vector Nudging

When nudging vector points, Photoshop exhibits some strange behaviour, linked to how far you’re currently zoomed in. At 100%, nudging using the arrow keys will move your vector point exactly 1 pixel. At 200%, nudging moves the point half a pixel. At 300%, it’ll move a third of a pixel.

  1. wow, this is incredibly useful. I’ve frequently resorted to trying to make micro moves with the mouse, which is hopeless. Thanks so much!

  2. I have noticed this is Illustrator CS5. I dont have a awesome solution. I find my self heading back to CS4 for pixel perfect scaling.
