Hello every one;;

For example In photoshop you can use left-right-up--down-- arrow keys to nodge..

How can I use the arrow keys to move polygons or objects, In Lightwave,, because when I use the Move Tool, some-times It is very hard to get the perfect move
Thanks every-one

hold down the alt-key while using the arrow keys.

you could map your shortcuts to only the arrow keys if you configure
your shortcuts..
the tool you want to map to the arrowkeys are nudge down,up,left,right

I prefer to have the arrow keys mapped to select next loop,previous loop and loop expand,contract..so the alt-key and arrows work fine for me.

Also if you hold down the ctrl key while moving youre object, you can lock/constrain to that axis you start to move at.
