Develop module Slider values...

    Is there away to adjust the slider values in the Develop Module...Exposure, Contrast, Clarity, and the like?

    For example, when I use the arrows to adjust a given slider value up or down, the count goes in 10's; that is to say, if I want to increase contrast, I highlight the contrast slider and click the right arrow. The adjustment value number goes from 0 to 10 - click the right arrow again, and the values go from 10 to 20 - and so on.

    Is there a way to set the values so that the adjustment of the slider goes in 1's? A search through Preferences, etc., revealed nothing. I can do it with the mouse, but that gets a bit aggravating.

    Thanks!

    Have you tried [OPT] + Up or Down Arrow?

    (Added the following intro line: )
    When the slider is selected (_not_ the value slider numeric text field):


    ⌥=
    and ⌥- will change the exposure slider in 2/10ths increments.

    The key-chords work with most (perhaps all) sliders. The slider must be selected. The amount of change for each key-chord is (afaict) fixed. = and - increase and decrease a full "step", ⌥= and ⌥- increase and decrease a small step.

    In case you don't know, you can select from the sliders in the Basic Panel of the Develop Module Right Module Panels by cycling through them with . and , for forward and backward. The name of the selected slider should be temporarily highlighted when it becomes active. On my machine, a hint pops up in a smoked bezel letting me know that I can use + (actually =) and - to move the slider and change the setting.

    Perhaps unexpectedly, selecting the sliders in the Basic Panel this way does not require any of the following:
    . The Basic Panel to be the active Panel
    . The Basic Panel to be expanded
    . The Basic Panel to be included in the Develop Module Right Module Panels
    . The Develop Module Right Module Panels to be shown.

    In practice, then, you can select and modify all these sliders from the keyboard, "blind" as it were, once you are in the Develop Module.
    . and , to cycle through the Basic Panel sliders
    = and - for up or down a step
    ⌥= and ⌥- for up and down a mini-step
    ⇧= and ⇧- for up and down a grand step.

    Truthfully, I had no idea about this - with the exception of the arrow up and down for the larger steps - a slider adjustment I knew of from Adobe Camera Raw. Great information - thanks for sharing!
