Written byPhuoc Nguyen

There are some CSS properties whose values contain numbers, such as `height`, `font-size`, `margin`, `padding`, `width`, etc. Rather than changing the value manually, we can quickly increase or decrease the value by using one of the following key combinations:
Key combinationsValue change
Increase by 1
Decrease by 1
alt + Increase by 0.1
alt + Decrease by 0.1
shift + Increase by 10
shift + Decrease by 10
cmd + Increase by 100
cmd + Decrease by 100
On Windows and Linux, the cmd key should be replaced with the ctrl key.
