Object Movement options

Apologies if this is posted elsewhere...In both PowerPoint and Photoshop, there is an invisible grid that can be used to align objects to one another. If you hold down the SHIFT key while dragging an object (text block, image, etc.), the object moves in a straight line along the axis it is in.Also, within PowerPoint, if you hold down the CTRL key while dragging an object, you create a copy of the object you are "moving" -- the original stays in place.I move in and out of Lectora, PPT, and Photoshop regularly and having a similar function in Lectora would ease my life.Thanks
