            Bug ID: 170779
           Summary: Web Inspector: Modify CSS number values with up key
                    and down key
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build

                OS: macOS 10.12

Selecting, editing and manipulating text in Chrome inspector has always been a joy, but Safari/Webkit has lacked some of those refinements.

One issue I brought up previously was in Chrome selecting a css attribute in Chrome inspector automatically selects that text rather then putting the cursor there unless your double click, which as a developer seems the better use case rather than the reverse of having a single click put cursor and double click highlight. While that idea was shot down previously here, I see in the latest Webkit it now selects text the Chrome way by default and the user can disable that in settings. Awesome!

However, in Chrome if I select an attribute such as "3em" with a single click I can then up arrow to increase that to say 4em, 5em, etc, or down arrow to 2em, 1em, -1em etc. which is incredible helpful in easily seeing how a layout changes with a single key but currently does not work in Webkit. With the new default selection, hopefully the up/down for number based items.

Happy to provide additional details as needed and loving all the great progress in Webkit Inspector.
