Coming from FL Studio.
Think ppl who used FL would know this feautre.

so in piano roll, (or in arranger view), we can use shift + mouse wheel to move horizontally.

But in FL, this function moved the selected midi note to move horizontally by very small distance (ignoring the grid while doing this).

However, in S1, we have to..

1. press "N" (for togglin off SNAP) 

2. then we have to use alt + left or right key to nudge it little bit. (which requires us to take our right hand off the mouse)

This requires a lot of uneccsarry movements, and you know in piano, we have chords and this requires a 4,5 repeated actions which takes a lot of time. 

now think about it for the whole project with lots of chords......:(((((((((

I have checked many combinations and apparently in S1, alt + mouse wheel is not used for ANYTHING in piano roll.

I think this feature can be added as this quick combination (since shift + mouse wheel is used for horizontal movement and ctrl + mouse wheel is used for zoom)

Hope this gets read by the Presonus Team. Thank you !
