Lightroom: Make fine adjustments to Tone Curve points using keys

At the moment the only way you can adjust points along a Tone Curve is by dragging with the mouse, and it's hard to make accurate adjustments, even with the graph at maximum size. It would be really useful to be able to make fine adjustments to points by toggle-selecting them and moving using the cursor keys.

Hold down the ALT key to make finer adjustments to Tone Curve points. You can restrict movement to vertical by holding down the SHIFT key. SHIFT + ALT also works. What I'd like to see is the ability to manually enter control points (Input, Output) same as in PS.

Hi @toddShaner - thanks for the reply. I'm aware of the ALT shortcut, but I still find the behaviour of the dragging quite clunky to control. I can't help thinking that being able to make keyboard taps would be easier to control.

Agreed, I'd like to see both arrow keys and manual entry boxes for controlling Tone Curve points. I've added my vote.
