Photoshop, Sketch, and other Pro apps let you increment font sizes, etc. using arrow up and arrow down keys on the keyboard. It would be great if this worked in Pixelmator Pro!

We use the default text field behavior in macOS for cases like this but we'll think about adding this!

Any updates about this feature? I was unpleasantly surprised that it's missing in the Pixelmator Pro.

Also, if you're ever to walk away from the standard MacOS text input field - in addition to up/down arrows making numeric values +/-1, why not implement basic arithmetic functions! Try it in Figma, it's incredible. E.g. I can change "2560" to "2560/2" then hit Enter and it becomes 1280. Handy!

Vladstudio, yes, the arithmetic would be very handy!

As a developer, I also want to use variables in input fields, and an additional tool where I can create these variables and change their values.
