Reserve the space key for moving the cursor

5 votes

Holding the space key and moving the cursor to the left/right is an immensely helpful function. Most of the time I place the cursor roughly and have to adjust only 1-2 characters though, and holding&swiping makes precise movement of a single character difficult.

What would be very intuitive is to use all gestures starting from the blank key to position the cursor. A short swipe makes a 1 character step (as the backspace already does) a long swipe would do what currently holding&swiping does. Even up and down would be possible this way.

Backwards compatibility could be kept by adding an option for this behaviour.
