Illustrator – Move an object by smaller keyboard increments

Adobe Illustrator is set up by default to move objects by increments that are too large, making it impossible to place precisely where necessary on your artboard.  All you have to do is change the Keyboard Increments in your Preferences, as you see in the illustration below.

Illustrator-object-increments1

Choose “General” and then change the number where you see “Keyboard Increment”.

Illustrator-object-increments_2

Click “OK” and you’re done.  The change is immediate.
