Allow cursor keys to position the cross hair #417
When moving the cross hair, it is sometimes not easy to hit the right UI item. See here:
Hitting the border of this area is not easy. I need be very slow with my mouse.
The idea is to allow cursor keys to position the selection tool (cross hair). It would move pixel by pixel and then I can select the UI components to screenshot easily.
Another idea would be Ctrl+cursor-left to select the next UI element left of the current one.
You can use W A S D to move the cursor pixel by pixel, which I think is more convenient for right-handed people.
The arrow keys are for moving the snipping area or the image window.
If you insist on using the arrow keys for cursor moving, I could offer an option for exchanging the functions of arrow keys and W A S D.
