    +1 to add nudge, and general comping features that are lacking in Ableton

    This is a very important editing technique that is lacking from ableton. Please have a look at Logic Pro to see how this is done.

    This would be such an awesome feature especially for sound design for film. Would be great to have a nudging feature that would allow to move by seconds, samples and beat grid. At least nudging according to whatever the grid setting is... Home to see this in a future update. Push would be great for this as well...

    What kind of an answer is that? That's not what the question was asking. 

    Simply put no. There's a load of key combinations to move your selection point / selection area around but nothing to simply move a clip. A huge oversight in my opinion as someone who often makes mixes in Arrangement View.

    Well, Live is an app that uses all the potential of graphic interface on systems that are based on mouse pointer (Windows - Mac) but of course, some times it is easier to use the Keyboard or combination of both in order to get faster actions.


    Regarding your question, i guess you already know that Cut - Copy - Paster are available commands that you can use with clips in the arrangement view to make them move along the timeline.

    The Arrows let you move along the timeline from the very left to the right. You need to point with the mouse over the section before the Keyboard takes the action.

    Shift + Control + Command + ALT , are Keys available as Top Hits that combined with others let you get great actions.
