Hi, Lars.

Yeah, I have experimented with enabling (under Accessibility) the mouse
emulation through arrow keys. In that way you might use those sliders to get
what you want without affecting the way windows snap to borders or edges. But
that wouldn't work for me with the way I use windows.

I'd be willing to bet there's a configuration file you can edit manually, but I
don't know just what special mojo would be involved.

Good luck!
