    What the...

    Alt-up/down/left/right now moves objects in 0.1 increments. Anyone know how to change this? Need it back to 1

      What happens if you just nudge without Alt?

        Without alt, it nudges it 1 pixel, like normal. But I'm now so used to holding down Alt/Option while nudging in order to see the changing distance between objects, that I really long for the old behavior (i.e. Alt merely reveals the distance, without changing the increment to 0.1)

        Note: Shift+Alt+arrow key moves it by 10 pixels as before. So literally no way to move it 1 px at a time with Alt pressed. Wondering if the 0.1 thing is a bug.

          Aaah, of course..

          Im pretty sure its not a bug, since they are mentioning it in their changelog.

          "The option key can now be used to move and resize layers in 0.1px increments, but still allows distance measurements"

      Only text objects :| really annoying

      Edit: this kinda worked for me

      9. Customize the arrow nudge distance

      You can now customize the arrow nudge distance (used for moving and keyboard-resizing) by using two hidden preferences, nudgeDistanceSmall and nudgeDistanceBig in the

      // Example: this sets Arrow distance to 2 pixels, and Shift+Arrow to 8 pixels defaults write com.bohemiancoding.sketch3 nudgeDistanceSmall -float 2.0 defaults write com.bohemiancoding.sketch3 nudgeDistanceBig -float 8.0

      I was super bummed when I discovered this too. I put the question up on the Sketch facebook group and somebody replied with this:

      "You do not have to change your workflow. As I show in this video the 0.1 increment is applied only if you do not hover an object with the cursor."

      Crisis averted.
