Sometimes when I move items on the grid with the arrow keys, I don't want them to move a single pixel, I would like them to move to the minor line of the grid so I can easily and quickly align items.

Is there a way to do this or is there another way of aligning items? I am using the multi-lane flow chart to diagram the flow between web services.

Going to https://www.draw.io/shortcuts.svg doesn't seem to have a way to set this.

  • did you try with ctrl + arrow keys (or shift or alt or some combo between them) like on other similar apps? (just a guess) – user0 Aug 13 '18 at 20:23
  • Yeah looks like if I used shift+arrow, it will work. I was hoping to have it snap to grid on arrow press and then use a modifier key for more finite movement but this should be fine. – PGT Aug 14 '18 at 4:33
  • glad to hear that. I shall add it as an answer... – user0 Aug 14 '18 at 19:42

SHIFT + ARROW KEY could do the trick
