Great find! Command+Arrow Key on selected pieces moves 100 units
This shows my ignorance of things like this, but I just discovered a great shortcut built into FontLab. As I have mentioned many times, moving selections right or left is a constant thing—especially while building composite glyphs and letterspacing a new font. One of my irritations over the years has been the internal debate over whether it is more efficient to move components with multiple shift+right arrows or to go to the mouse and shift+drag. I’ve used both over the years, but they are both frustrating.
Again to review, the arrow key moves one unit and the shift+arrow key moves ten units. I just accidently found that the Command+arrow moves the selection 100 units. What a great timesaver!
