moving objects with Gkey too fine/slow

I must have accidently hit a key combination that make the Gkey (translation of obects) work in a “fine” mode…I can only move objects a small distance despite a large movement of the mouse…any clues?

There might be a problem with your shift key. Try pressing that a few times and see if that fixes the problem.

thanks for the reply, but the problem was that, when in perspective mode, moving meshes is much slower (? due to the needed spatial calculations) than in ortho view (KeyPad 5)…
