    That's good to hear, thanks Peter. There should be a tooltip shown when you hover over the position slider at the top of the map - this shows the keyboard shortcuts that you can use to move the slider, so hopefully people will spot this. We've also added them to our How-To Guide on Using Keyboard Shortcuts.

    Went through a couple of routes and edited directions (added, relocated, fixed symbols). It's working really well now on laptop. I'm just worried that new users don't see the possibility. Maybe a text label that it's possible to fine tune by shotcuts.

    Yes, sorry, Keyboard Shortcuts are a Premium feature.

    Or maybe this tool is only available as Premium Feature (Short cuts) ?

    Yes, now It seems to work all the time.

    If I move the slider to one position and then chose '+ Add' in Directionspanel, the slider moves to a an earlier place. Is it possible to have the Add-direction function to adapt the position of the slider?

    We've made some tweaks - it should hopefully be working OK now.

    This is great inititive, but I also have problem to get shift+arrow to 'grab' the slider (and not move the map).

    Sometimes it works and sometimes not, but I've not been able to get exactly when.

    If I open an existing route in edit mode, shift arrow can be used to move the slider. After I've resized or moved the map with the mouse, do not move the slider, sh-arrow also move the map.

     

    This is great for adding directions, but I also would like a shortcut for adding an anchor to be able to use the slider better when adding anchors when route passes the same place.

    Thanks for testing this out. It looks like you need to click off the map for it to work - we hadn't spotted that, i.e. if your last mouse click was somewhere on the map, shift+arrow will move the map, but if your last mouse click was anywhere else on the page it should work fine. We'll have another look at it to see if we can find a way to overcome this.

    Hi John.

    I had a test on both Mac and by (virtual box) Windows. Using Chrome browser.

    I suppose my operation technique is ok, but seems not to give the expected position marker shift result. My mistake ? 

    1. Test by Arrow only: Moves the map  2. By Shift + Arrow: Moves the map by bigger steps. Both as was the standard behaviour before.  Suggest pse keep.

     (Ctrl+Arrow is still free)
