VisualEditor: Allow re-positioning of selected media items using arrow keys
Open, LowPublic


When an image is selected it should be possible to position it using the cursor keys.

up/down should move it one line up/down. Whether left/right should move it one character or one word at a time I'm not sure about. Possibly shift/ctrl should modify this?

This would be useful for fine control and for systems with laggy mouse behaviour (not uncommon on slow connections in my experience).

We probably can't use arrow keys (because that's over-riding expected behaviour of moving the cursor) but we could use Ctrl+→ etc. potentially.
