New Nudge functionality in AutoCAD 2012 lets you move selected objects a few pixels in an orthogonal direction. After selecting the objects, simply press Ctrl plus the appropriate arrow key up, down, left or right. The distance objects are moved is dependent on the current Snap setting. If Snap is off, objects move two pixels each time you press an arrow key. Therefore, if you’re zoomed way out in the drawing, one nudge can go a long way. If you’re zoomed far into the drawing, nudging may only move the objects a small amount in relation to the rest of the drawing. When Snap is on, the nudge increment is determined by the snap spacing.
