I know this would breach the carefully constructed wall between modes, but it would be really nice, for example, to be able to shuffle a text block a bit in Write mode, perhaps with a key trigger like Insert has. Sometimes I just need to nudge an object a little, and having to switch modes and find my bearings again to do it seems a hassle. Thanks!
Hopefully this will be less necessary when text objects automatically avoid collisions with other items, like everything else does. This should hopefully be done in the 1.0.10 update.
