Develop Module use of + and minus keys to make adjustments, can the default step size be altered?

In the Develop Module you are able to click on the name of the slider and then use the + and - keys to adjust each element eg Exposure, Contrast etc etc. The adjustment steps are too large and I would like to be able to change the increments. Has anyone worked out if this is possible?

    Hold down Option/Alt key for smaaller increments.Hold down Shift key for larger incremenst.


    BTW, clicking on slider isn't necessaary for +/- key adjustments to work. Also, you can cycle through the ajustments in Basic panel using the ' and . keys

    Hi Ian,


    You are the last person I ever want to correct around here, but.... it's the . (period) / , (comma) keys for cycling through the Basic adjustments.  This is very handy; thanks for pointing it out.


    As for adjustment size, pressing Shift does make the increments larger, but pressing Alt (on PC) is for Resetting the Tone and Presence sliders.  Using the +/- keys work as expected, but the Up and Down arrows don't always move the sliders.
