I love using the Transform Tool, since it can do a lot! I seldom use the Move Tool, other than the times I need to move something pixel by pixel/unit by unit using the arrow keys. To my understanding, the arrow keys do nothing when in the Transform Tool.
I would love it if I could move things with the Transform Tool using the arrow keys like I can in the Move Tool!
When I started using Krita I expected the Transform Tool to be able to use the arrow keys to move things. Since it didn’t, I thought Krita didn’t have this feature.
Until a while ago when I looked further into the Move Tool. It took me half a year to realize that Krita had this feature, and I was surprised as to how hidden it was for someone mostly using the Transform Tool.
What I want:
I know that both tools have their strengths and have different use cases, but I often find it inefficient to switch between the two Tools for the feature I have mentioned, instead of just using the Transform tool that has all the things I want.
I want to use the arrow keys with the Transform Tool to move the selection, just like the Move Tool can. This way, I can use the Transform tool for all my needs, instead of swapping tools back and forth just to move my selection a set amount of pixels.
I want both the Move Tool and the Transform Tool to have this in the Tool Options, and be able to use it with the Transform Tool:
How I want to use it:
I want to be able to select something, scale it, move it and then nudge it pixel by pixel/unit by unit with the arrow keys to get the exact position I want. All from the same tool; the Transform Tool. This slight inefficiency is one of the few things that keeps me from doing design work in Krita. I hope this feature will be considered!
