CTRL + Mouse Scroll to Move Objects in Edit Mode

Status: New

Don't have enough time to make any fancy pictures or diagrams, but the idea is simple. When cleaning up VIs, I find myself constantly switching my right hand between the mouse and the arrow keys. It would be really slick to be able to move highlighted FP/BD objects with a CTRL + Mouse Scroll combination. Here's my thoughts on what the combinations could be:

 

CTRL + Mouse Scroll Up: Move highlighted object(s) one pixel up

CTRL + Mouse Scroll Down: Move highlighted object(s) one pixel down

CTRL + ALT + Mouse Scroll Up: Move highlighted object(s) one pixel right

CTRL + ALT + Mouse Scroll Down: Move highlighted object(s) one pixel left

 

And to get really fancy...

 

CTRL + SHIFT + Mouse Scroll Up: Move highlighted object(s) several pixels up

CTRL + SHIFT + Mouse Scroll Down: Move highlighted object(s) several pixels down

CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + Mouse Scroll Up: Move highlighted object(s) several pixels right

CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + Mouse Scroll Down: Move highlighted object(s) several pixels left

Saying "Thanks that fixed it" or "Thanks that answers my question" and not giving a Kudo or Marked Solution, is like telling your waiter they did a great job and not leaving a tip. Please, tip your waiters.
