Something that Drives me *CRAZY*

Hi Dave,

I know exactly what you mean and completely agree with you. There is  
one problem though. I often use the mouse to move an object only one  
pixel. Mouse "de-boucing" would force me to move objects 2 or 3  
pixels into one direction and then 1 or 2 pixels into the opposite  
direction. Do you have any suggestions, let's say from a user's point  
of view rather than a programmer's point of view, as to how to avoid  
this inconvenience? I know that it is possible to use the arrow keys  
to move objects one pixel at a time, but somehow I use the mouse all  
the time.

Best regards,
