Default How to nudge audio in Pro Tools 2022 without numeric keyboard

I've just upgraded to a new 2021 M1 laptop (with no numeric section), and Pro Tools 2022. On my old laptop (MacBook Pro 2017) and Pro Tools 2020, there was a shortcut for nudging audio (can't remember it exactly, but it included the left and right arrow keys, so maybe shift - option - and arrow key? or something like that). I've searched extensively for how to do this on my new laptop with Pro Tools 2022, and I can't figure out how without purchasing and carrying a numeric pad extension. Is there no laptop keyboard short cut for this anymore in Pro Tools 2022??


Thanks!

By putting together info from two threads (having read many others that are out of date) and, finally, reaching out to a friend who's on the Beta testing team for Pro Tools, I've sorted it out. As this seems to have changed many times over the years, here's my update for 2022:


1) Select "Link Timeline and Edit Selection" in upper left controls
2) Select the AZ box (the Command Focus), so it's yellow - in upper right of tracks area of edit window
3) Use < and > keys to nudge right or left the amount you've selected in the nudge area in the control panel at top of page

I don't nudge that often so I had to check, and with command focus on, on my mac, it's comma and period, back and forth.

(Added: for me, the >< button switches between shuffle, spot, grid and slip modes.)

Cool.
Comma (<) & period (>) also work when there IS a numeric pad.
Now I don't have to reach to the far right +/- on the numeric pad.

Thanks

I just program Nudge into the thumb buttons on my mouse.

Slightly genius. I'm trying this!

On Windows, I use X-Mouse Button Control, free and the best mouse driver I've ever used. If on Mac, look at SteerMouse.

I have a 7 button Logitech MS500 wired mouse, programmed for Pro Tools as follows:

Left Click = Left Click
Right Click = Separate at Playhead
Scroll Wheel Button Down = Clear
Scroll Wheel Tilt Left = Delete
Scroll Wheel Tilt Right = Right Click
Front Thumb Button = Nudge Left
Back Thumb Button = Nudge Right

There are a number of Layers in XMBC, so I can have different shortcuts for different editing scenarios.

As always, YMMV.

The good thing about comma and period is M and "forward slash" nudge by the next value up without having to change nudge values. So if comma and period are nudging by 1 sample, M and forward slash nudge by 10 samples (and so on and so on for bars/beats, timecode, etc.)
