Hi Thorsten

My idea was to keep normal +- and numpad +- equal, so that people used to
the numpad as a faster method of entering numbers won't be restricted (need
I say ALDI? hehe).

Shift N may be wrong. The default for deleting stuff in buttons is Shift
Backspace. You get very accustomed to that keystroke in Blender once you
know it, so maybe that should be used.

On the other hand, to be fast, the default for numerical input should be
that the old value is entirely replaced. So far you are right and my
proposals were contradicting each other.. Since the default values are
always the same and relative(R/G0.00 or S1.00), ShiftN isn't necessary. But
backspace and Shiftbackspace should have the function that they have in the
buttons to kepp consistency.

Theeth: would it be an idea to also present the absolute values, not only
relative ones (although parenting becomes an issue there)?
