    illustrator issues

    why would illustrator only let me move the objects in full units. i mean it goes from 13.634 px to 14.634 px.

    how do i move it within those 0.999 px between those two values?

    i've tried haing ctrl, shift and many other keys pressed while moving. also looked up in the preferences and nothing.

    i've been searching for half an hou now in tuts, and nothing... anyone??

    thankies.

    using the arrow keys, they move by the grid untis of your document. Try changing your document to smaller units. Or just drag and drop using the mouse. why do you need to be so exact? Just like Photoshop, You can't move less than 1 pixel.

    this is vectors my friend.not photoshop they permit non whole positions. same as flash. the info panel shows the units with up to 3 decimal places: eg 13.236 px

    you think that's just there to decorate??

    the thing is that i don't have access to the info panel like i do in flash. in flash you can click and enter a value with the keyboard. here it doesn't...

    why should it be so exact? because i'm designing a logo and it needs to have the same space between the characters that compose my logo word.
    if not when scaling and other transformations the design will slightly suffer.

    and however, it can't be that difficult. i'm sure it has to do with a checkbox somewhere... just don't know where
