Canvas: Allow moving of items with keyboard arrows

Use case or problem

I’d like to tweak the position of my items in the canvas by moving them using the keyboard arrows. Many other infinite canvas apps out there allow for this fine tune control. At the moment the only way to make fine adjustments is to zoom in a lot and use the mouse which isn’t that accurate.

Proposed solution

With an item/s selected, pressing any of the arrow keys moves the selected item/s in the canvas accordingly. Holding down shift and pressing the arrow keys moves the items by a larger increment.

Current workaround (optional)

Using the mouse - click & drag
