Please increase the limit for Keyboard Increment
The Keyboard Increment (aka Cursor Key Distance) is limited to 1296 px.
But artboards can be much bigger. So please set this limit to eg the half of the maximum artboard size.
I see, makes sense.
Well, 1296 is 6^4, but it feels odd as an explanation.
There is the same limit for the font size: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/31773148-allow-type-to-scale-larger-than-1296-pts
Well, still it feels like a workaround to not having a proper Move dialog in the iPad version of Ai...
If I had this problem myself, I’d scale my artwork down 4 times, but I assume you have reasons to leave it unscaled, right?

@Egor - For example when making big repeating patterns (e.g. to use as a texture tile or pattern tile).
To create a seamless tile, I need to replicate the element at the sides to the opposite sides. In stead of using the Move command to copy elements (and repeatedly enter the distance in the numeric field), I like to enter this as Keyboard Increment, to have it handy at all time.
Let's say the tile I am working on is 4096 x 4096 px - currently I have to use 1024 as Keyboard Increment and press it four times to reach the other side. I think 1296, is some kind of 8 bit leftover. Don't know why it is still a limit.
Just curious — what is the workflow which requires such prominent jumps? What do you move?
Also — do you mean iPad or Desktop?
