Description

This script provides menu items to nudge the pixelInset of a GUITexture and the pixelOffset of a GUIText by 1 pixel or 10 pixels. This is useful for positioning user interfaces. It saves time because you don't have to repeatedly perform addition and subtraction on the pixelInset and pixelOffset of your GUI elements.

Usage

Place this script in YourProject/Assets/Editor/NudgeGUIElements.cs and menu items will automatically appear in the Custom menu after it is compiled. Then select one or more GUIText and/or GUITexture and select a nudge item in the menu i.e. "Custom/Nudge/Left Fast".
