Orthogonal cursor motion

Postby hking » Wed May 11, 2011 6:10 am

Is there a way to move the cursor orthogonally when copying a block of elements like in AutoCad, other than finding a reference point and typing coordinates? I need to copy a letter (in copper) when changing a revision level, and I want it to line up exactly with other text.

Best to use the arrow keys for such operations.
Press the Space Bar to detach the mouse from the crosshair, then move the cursor with the arrow key.
Keep Shift pressed for finer moves.
You can later press the Space Bar again to re-attach the mouse to the crosshair.
