Thanks for explaining that.

I have been setting up the nudge for 0.1 mm and this does exactly what I
wanted.  However on my machine the Choices screen to Art Works 2 choices
has some slightly odd behaviour if I want to alter this setting:

First, when saved, it changes from 0.1 mm to 0.01 cm.  No problem with

Second when I use the arrows to change the setting, to goes up to 0.11
cm, 0.21 cm etc.  I would have expected it to go up to 0.02 cm, 0.03 cm,
etc.  Is this something wrong with my machine?

Third, if I change the setting down it goes to 0 cm and then up takes it
to 0.1 cm and not back to 0.01 cm.  Again this looks a bit odd here on
my machine (Iyonix 5.13).
