GFUI feature request - Shift-Click to drag in a straight line


Basically, in Inkscape, when you hold Shift while trying to drag an item, it does so in a straight line to the left/right/up/down without moving diagonally at all. This would be great in the GFUI when lining up multiples of the same object. When doing this manually, sometimes they are offset a bit up or down, which I think increases the amount of time it takes to cut/engrave as it sometimes travels between them a bit awkwardly.

Otherwise, no major complaints.


Would indeed be a nice addition. In the meantime, I’ve taken to using shift + the arrow keys to quickly move things orthogonally in the UI, then just the arrow keys for fine adjustments.


Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll make sure the team gets it.
