I read in the manual that one can make 50% and 200% scaled objects, as
well as scale up and down by 2 pixels.
But: can one constrain the finess of the scaling the same way one can in
Blender? That is:
- hold control to scale up/down modifying only the first decimal, all
other decimals to zero
- hold control and shift to do the same for the second decimal.
Such ease in precision constraining would be very useful for CAD-like

Inkscape does not operate in "decimals". If you want the sizes to take
only quantized values, you need snapping to grid, which Inkscape
supports. You can set any spacing of the grid.
For keyboard moves and transforms, we support two main modes: fixed
nudges for a settable distance (without Alt) and pixel-sized nudges
(with Alt), both can be multiplied by 10 with Shift. This satisfies
the needs of both technical users who need absolute-unit precision and
artistic users who need slight visual adjustments depending on the
current zoom level. For more details, see
Inkscape. Draw Freely.
