Nudge & Resize for Adobe XD

Add menu items for nudging and resizing objects (8px by default) so they can be controlled by keyboard shortcuts.

1. Search for and install "Nudge and Resize" in Adobe XD plugins directory.

2.1 Set keyboard shortcuts in MacOS

Keyboard shortcuts can't be set by plugins (yet) so you need to add them at the OS level.

These are the ones I use, as they're the ones most other design tools use.

Keyboard shortcuts in Windows

These should follow the arrows listed on numberpads.

3. Use the Settings menu item to change the large nudge/resize value.

The default is 8px but you can change this to whatever you like. Simply enter a whole number, and hit save.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
