A way to edit/move automation line on project window with precision?

is there a way to edit the automation line with key modifier with small moves and with precision ?
like when we move a fader with Shift modifier in cubase it moves in small increments , i didn’t find a way to do it when edit/moving automation line one the project window.
i mix sometimes on protools and its very convenient and practical to use it with key modifier , it also shows you the actual value and the difference u made while editing the automation line.
in cubendo i need to zoom the automation lane to very big size to make more precise moves on automation lines/lanes


This is a definite issue - also that when doing panning automation it doesn’t snap to C is something that has bothered me for years.

Here is an example, at first i don’t use the modifier and the edit is in big value steps, then i use the Cntl modifier and i can edit the automation precisely without zooming the automation lane.
it also shows the value of the automation and the difference made in the brackets next to the mouse cursor , so it give a good info of the edit moves and also its in sight and u don’t have to look at the info line on top of the project to view the value when editing.
the values just there next to the mouse cursor

I tend to use the Info Line to make fine adjustments to values (such as automation nodes or MIDI data) and either use arrow keys or the scroll wheel.
