    awesome, i was struggling with just this sort of thing!

    however, excessive use of puns requires you sit in the naughty corner :-)

    Absolutely worth watching. I thought I knew how to use the shift key but I was wrong.

    Hi.  We have a ton of new users, so I wanted to make sure everyone knows about this video.  I think it helps when mating assemblies.

    @darren_henry @scott_harrisThere are applications that do a good job making stuff like this discoverable.

    For meta key + mouse gesture wizardry like this, I think Inkscape does a good job with their tool & context specific help in the status bar.
